Michael and Mary Harnett, who donated $40,000 to the Nepean Cancer Carers Dry July campaign in 2017, was officially recognised at a celebratory event at Nepean hospital. The huge donation is the highest amount raised by one person since Dry July commenced 10 years ago!
Mary wanted to show her gratitude to everyone at Nepean cancer care for the support they gave through Michaels Cancer Journey and to provide much needed equipment to help other go through their own personal journey.
Michael and Mary's donation has funded hospital beds with pressure relieving mattress so patients can return home in comfort and improve their quality of life. Michael and Mary also provided smaller pieces of pressure reliving equipment to help patients get home safely.
Co-founder of Dry July, Brett Macdonald, was thrilled to attend the celebrations and presented Mary with a memorable plaque.
