Thanks to funds raised through Dry July 2019, the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre have been able to fund the following projects:
• Exercise Physiologists at the ONJ Centre Wellness Gym, allowing the gym to increase hours to meet demand (currently 41 patients on wait list)
• Cancer Information and Resource Service
• Continued funding for the Oncology Massage Program
Special services like oncology massage make a life changing difference to people with cancer, like Beverley. “I get to the point where my neck feels like it’s wrapped up with barbed wire. Oncology massage is a life-saver for me and incredibly beneficial to my quality of life” – Beverley Douglas, patient.
Suan from the Wellness Centre sees the enormous impact wellness programs have on patients and families, and is filled with gratitude for our amazing Dry July supporters. “Every day I see how patients and families are supported by our wellness programs,” says Suan. “Dry July’ers really are making a life-changing difference for patients, families and carers.”
