Dry July 2018 has officially kicked off at St Vincent’s and we are well on our way to raising the funds required to support our popular patient wellbeing programs in the Wellness Centre. Our Kinghorn Cancer Centre fundraising team are at the halfway mark and feeling the benefits of two weeks alcohol free!
Over the past 12 months, with funding made possible from last year’s Dry July campaign, our Cancer patients have thoroughly enjoyed attending free programs including Art Therapy, Meditation and Mindfulness, Yoga Therapy and ENRICH Healthy Lifestyle.
This month, our Yoga Therapy group began their weekly sessions, coming together for the next six weeks to enjoy a moment of stillness, reflection and time out from their treatment schedules.
These funds also make it possible for our patients to access free complementary therapies such as Oncology Massage and Acupuncture, providing much needed relaxation and relief from symptoms such as nausea, fatigue and anxiety.
Your support of St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney this Dry July is vital to continue these wellbeing programs in 2019.
