Each year we approach the campaign with a light-hearted and positive attitude to help staff, patients and their families to get on board with Dry July. Here are some photos of our events to promote the campaign in 2017.

Our plans for Dry July 2017 funds.
Each year we work incredibly hard to raise funds through the Dry July campaign. Have you been wondering how this year’s donations might be spent? Our ‘Bright Ideas’ patient survey campaign, showed a trend for three focus areas which have been categorised as follows:
Introduction of Living Well With and After Cancer Treatment programs, which aim to assist people who have completed their cancer treatment to help enrich their quality of life and take the care of their mind, body and spirit.
Reinvigorate our space. Our patients have told us that more pleasant waiting areas, the introduction of visual and digital arts and improved refreshment facilities would be a welcome addition to regular appointments throughout treatment.
Develop the While You’re Here initiative that will provide a series of creative mediums for patients and family members to use during treatment or while waiting for treatment. This includes art and craft spaces, daily newspapers, magazines and the availability of technology to listen to music or browse the internet.
There have been so many incredible ideas added to our Wish List for this year’s fundraising. We cannot wait to bring them to life!
Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre is planning to use Dry July 2016 funds towards the purchase and installation of digital sky ceilings for the radiotherapy bunkers and other clinical areas throughout the cancer centre.
Research has shown that pleasing aesthetics in he bunkers has a positive impact on patient comfort, anxiety and overall experience during radiotherapy treatment.
Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre’s First Projects
2015 was Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre’s first year as a Dry July beneficiary.
The centre plans to use funds raised to install digital sky ceilings in radiotherapy bunkers and other clinical areas throughout the cancer centre, to reduce the clinical feel within the treatment and consult areas, and also install free WiFi for patients.
