Dry July fundraising has helped Nepean Cancer Care develop a specialised 8 week exercise program.
Dry July funds have been put to good use in a number of ways, most recently through a new exercise program that sees patients complete a specialised 8-week Exercise program run by an accredited Exercise Physiologist in Emu Plains.
Cancer Care Physio Glyndon Wakeman says that they hope to continue to fund the program through the support of Dry July.
“The most important thing is to have the support of people driving donations through the Dry July”, says Glyndon.
Peter from Erskine Park is a patient of the Nepean Cancer Care Centre who is seeing the benefits of being involved in the program.
“I’ve got more energy for a start”, says Peter. “It improves my day-to-day lifestyle and is helping to slow down the progression of my cancer.”
