Furnishings and Equipment
St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne used Dry July 2015 funds to improve patients' comfort by purchasing:
- 2 special vital signs monitors which are less likely to cause discomfort when taking blood pressure readings
- Beds to enable overnight visitors
- Additional chairs for patient areas
- A Stedy transfer aid to transport ambulant patients from bed side to bathroom or chair to help patients preserve energy and reduce fatigue
- 2 patient bedside chairs with high backs
- A blanket warming cabinet for Oncology
Congratulations, we made it!
Congratulations to all of our Dry July supporters this year. You did it! What a fantastic effort. A whole month without alcohol, and all for an extraordinary cause – you should be very proud, we certainly are!
We are so thrilled with the donations St Vincent’s has received this year and are hopeful to see the overall tally continue to rise as we see out the month of August. Every dollar you’ve donated will go directly to the cause, benefiting our cancer patients, making a difficult time in their lives just that little bit easier. THANK YOU.
We look forward to sharing with you all the benefits from this year’s fundraising efforts.
Thank You from St Vincent's
Thank you for helping to make a difference to the lives of people receiving their treatment in the St. Vincent’s Cancer Centre. We acknowledge that this can be a very difficult and daunting time for patients. These challenges affect not only those with cancer but their family and friends too. With funds raised from previous years’ Dry In July campaigns we have been able to introduce extras that have helped make the Cancer Centre more welcoming, supportive and comforting. Funds raised in past campaigns have meant that while receiving their cancer treatment, patients are now able to relax in a massage chair and listen to their favourite music. All visitors are welcomed the view of fresh flowers and the greenery of an internal garden. We are excited to be the beneficiaries of another Dry in July campaign so that we can continue to add improvements to our centre that will help ease the burden of receiving treatment for cancer.
