Nepean Cancer Care Centre is located in Penrith and sees more than 220 patients a day. With this number growing rapidly the support we receive from Dry July helps us to purchase specialised equipment and fund projects such as laser therapy, artwork and murals to create ambiance, wellness programs and new wigs for the wig library. Cancer affects the mind, body and spirit, which is why Nepean Cancer Care Centre offers a holistic approach to treatment and healing, encompassing physical, emotional, social and spiritual care. We understand that this can be a difficult and often frightening time for patients, as well as for their family and friends.

Last year Dry July funded our first Wellness Exercise Program that has shown to improve our patients’ physical, mental wellbeing and recovery journey. This year we wish to continue funding to support the Wellness program, install images on the ceiling of our radiation treatment room to help reduce patient anxiety and purchase equipment to help improve the comfort and care of patients affected by cancer.

Patient quiet room transformed thanks to Dry July Foundation funding

The patient chat room at Nepean Cancer Care Centre has been transformed thanks to Dry July funds from last year’s campaign. The improved ambience makes a huge difference when talking to patients about their treatment.

This year Nepean Cancer Care Centre hope to do a similar renovation to their blood collection room in order to help relieve patients’ anxiety further. Help them drive up donations to reach their goal and improve the experience of cancer patients in the Penrith area by donating HERE
