You Dry July funds just keep on giving!

When we introduced Music in the Bunkers to our patients in 2017 we didn’t realise the impact it would have. Five years on patients continue to experience this form of music therapy while they undergo their radiation treatment.

Dry July initially funded the ipads and speakers allowing patients to select music they wished to listen to, so they felt in control, allowing them to remain calm and simply enjoy music at what can be a very stressful time.

Every year since 2017 Dry July has funded the annual subscription to our premium music provider. It’s a small cost but it continues to make a massive difference to patients and we will keep this going with the help of Dry July funding as it is such a worthwhile project.

Thank you Dry July!

Check out how your Dry July funds have made a difference for Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre

The nursing staff at our rural service in Milton on the South Coast, NSW reached out expressing a need to purchase a vein finder.

Milton does not have a vascular access Clinical Nurse Consultant and when patients with difficult veins present sometimes multiple attempts are required to locate a vein. It has been witnessed that this can cause anxiety among some patients and also treatment delays.

Providing this piece of equipment which accurately detects veins in patients will completely eliminate the need for multiple attempts.

Thank you Dry July for providing this equipment to our rural service! In doing so we have reports of a more efficient service and reduced anxiety amongst both staff and patients.

Your Dry July funds have provided Patient Achievement Packs for Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre

Completing treatment is a significant personal achievement in the lives of our patients. We wanted to acknowledge this milestone by gifting our patients an achievement pack in the hope it provides them with feelings of accomplishment and empowerment.

Items selected for the packs were carefully curated, which include self care products such as moisturiser, lip balm, sunscreen, hairbrush, plus a diary, throat drops, mindfulness activity book and more.

Two different packs were created and products are bundled together in beautiful handmade tote bags kindly donated by Kiama Boomerang Bags.

The reaction from patients on receiving the packs has been extraordinary. It comes as a surprise to them and they have found it so thoughtful!

Thank you Dry July for providing us the opportunity to create these packs for patients!!
