One of the programs your Dry July fundraising has supported is the 'Return to Wellness' Program at Mater Cancer Care Centre.
Developed by the Mater Breast Care team, Return to Wellness offers breast cancer patients' access to a guided exercise program with a physiotherapist and breast care nurse, and advice about their diet and lifestyle choices to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Debbie (pictured) has been a Mater Volunteer for ten years working in the Mater Cancer Care Centre. However, at the beginning of this year, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and joined the hospital as a patient.
After enduring treatment which Debbie has described as a "very intense experience", she is now thriving in the Return to Wellness Program and can feel her strength returning. Debbie has been also valuing the support from her care team, fellow volunteers, and her daughters, who have helped her throughout her journey.
A massive shout out to our incredible Dry July 2020 participants and donors, you've helped to make the Return to Wellness Program possible. ❤️
