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.

'Fast Ed' visits the Cancer Centre!

Nepean Cancer Care was buzzing with excitement on 25th July when celebrity chef and Dry July foundation ambassador Fast Ed came to visit the Centre. Together with the lovely support and donation of some delicious cupcakes from Mrs C’s CupCakes, Ed visited our Day Ward handing out cupcakes to patients and taking the time to have a chat with them and their support person. We are so thankful to Ed for coming along touring our Centre and taking the time to speak to our patient and staff. It was such a great day with feedback from our patients and staff commenting that it was such an uplifting experience. Thank you Ed and Mrs C’s Cupcakes for helping us raise awareness for our Dry July campaign and bringing a little joy to those currently battling the fight against Cancer.
