Nepean Cancer Care Centre used funds from Dry July 2015 to improve patient comfort in the clinic rooms, including installing custom artwork on a CT scanner.
Having tests during a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be overwhelming and this artwork is intended to offer a less clinical environment for patients.
Wednesday was Nepean Cancer Care Centre's Dry July cake stall.
A little girl by the name of Sinise Hearn knew about this event and decided she would use this day to do something very special that she had waited to do for over two years! Sinise wanted to cut her hair and donate it for wigs for cancer patients. Sinise had met a lady at that time who had gone through chemo at our centre and had seen her lose her hair. From that point on she decided she wanted to help. She also thought that this would be a great opportunity to raise money for our patients through Dry July. So far, through donations on the day and online she has raised just over $400. All this from a little eight year old girl with a big heart and the encouragement and support of her family.
Well done Sinise!
The cake stall also raised an amazing $700.00!
The incredible Nepean Cancer Carers held a lunchtime BBQ this week, raising over $550 for Dry July. They could have sold more but unfortunately ran out of sausages!
Thanks to IGA Blaxland who supplied all the goods free of change and without any hesitation to donate.
To celebrate the launch of Dry July, the NCCC held a Trivia Night on 1 July 2016. Here are some photos from the night - with a special thanks to the sponsors including donors to the silent auction and especially the Kingswood Bowling Club, who provided the venue at no cost, and whose customers made unexpected cash donations.
Over $7,500.00 was raised at the event!
