Canberra Hospital Foundation is proud to support the Canberra Region Cancer Centre, which is a world class healthcare facility that brings together cancer treatment, research, teaching programs and related services in one purpose-built facility.
The care and support of our patients is central to everything we do. Services operating within the Centre take a multi-disciplinary team approach to health treatment and support.
Our cancer services are made up of several highly skilled teams, including Medical and Radiation Oncology, Haematology, Immunology, Surgery, Bone Marrow Transplant, Psychosocial and Palliative Care to provide comprehensive services to patients with cancer and related illnesses, and their carers.
The diagnosis of cancer alters patients’ lives as they know it. Everything is put on hold. The suffering is widespread, with so many loved ones also affected.
Through Dry July and the Canberra Hospital Foundation, your donation will help us to provide extra support and comfort that will complement and enhance the treatment and healing of patients, families and carers affected by cancer in Canberra and the surrounding region.
Since 2009, the amazing support of our Dry July community has enabled initiatives and items including the Therapeutic Harp Program, Sleep Pods, the Hospitality Trolley, uplifting art murals, floral arrangements, massage chairs and blanket warmers, just to name a few.
These initiatives support patients’ wellbeing by offering relaxation, comfort, distraction and ultimately, help to make very difficult experiences a little bit easier.
By going dry for the month of July, you are making a meaningful difference to the lives of so many people affected by cancer, we are so grateful for your support!
