Dry July participants support continuation of on-going wellness and wig programs

The Relaxation and Meditation Program has been able to continue in 2017-2018 thanks to the funds raised by our supporters. The program specifically caters for people with cancer and their carers. We rely solely on Dry July Funds to run

this program, which is held in Chatswood at the Dougherty Community Centre once a week. The program supports participants to cope better with the impact of cancer and ultimately aims to improve their wellbeing during and after cancer treatment.

The funds raised have also continued to support the Wig Library at the Northern Sydney Cancer Centre. Due to the generosity of Dry July and our supporters, the funds have allowed us to purchase additional wigs and stock wig care kits for patients being treated in the Northern Sydney region. The service is open to patients from both public and private hospital in the area and is a free service. We now stock over 400 wigs from high quality brands, giving people with cancer access to a

service that they would otherwise have to pay hundreds of dollars for. The service therefore gives patients choice and reduces some of the stress of managing hair loss from cancer treatment.
