St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney is a leading provider of cancer care for patients across New South Wales.

Support us today to help us raise money to sustain wellbeing and hardship programs for our cancer patients.

With your support St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney will be able to continue to provide wellbeing programs for our patients having their cancer treatment at The Kinghorn Cancer Centre.

Comprehensive on-site group programs such as art therapy, meditation and mindfulness, Yoga therapy and healthy lifestyle programs have been shown to support patient’s physical and mental wellbeing and recovery, at all stages of their treatment.

This year, your support will also allow St Vincent’s haematology inpatients to access free wellness therapies during their hospital stay, including bedside art therapy, music therapy and reflexology.

These therapies provide enormous support and provide a distraction from the many days and weeks spent in the ward, as a result of a blood cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Wellness programs at Kinghorn Cancer Centre

Dry July funding is making a difference to the lives of patients at Kinghorn Cancer Centre in Sydney.

Here is some feedback from the wellness programs:

“Being a pensioner and with many medical & travel expenses I could have never afforded to experience these programs, if they cost me to join. Having the opportunity to be around likeminded people in this environment where I can learn things that will help me on my journey, is fantastic. I feel very lucky and very grateful, Thank you” – J. N –patient 

“I would like to convey appreciation for the extremely relaxing and informing group sessions at the Kinghorn, as I look forward to a continuation and broadening of this experience as I journey through your sessions.

Over a long period of time, my brain has become accustomed to automatic worry and deep sadness relating to chronic external complications, sensitised yet further by a traumatic life-threatening experience. I found the meditation and ENRICH sessions extremely welcoming, encouraging and enabling. My mind has been introduced to a surprisingly accessible healthful ways of thinking within a manageable, structured approach that I already see promotes daily practice and thus habit formation. I hope you are enjoying delivering the sessions as much as the group must all be deriving enormous inner peace whilst developing life-enriching practices.

And so I close with the most sincere thanks and well wishes to the Kinghorn for these free patient classes." L.M – patient
