The Canberra Region Cancer Centre 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 and their carers with cancer and related illnesses.
The diagnosis of cancer alters patient’s 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 will help us to provide extra support and comfort that will compliment 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.
This year, with your help, funds raised will support the purchase of new, bright and comfortable lounges, chairs and tables which will furnish the Social Hub in the Wellbeing Centre - a new and exciting addition to the Canberra Region Cancer Centre. The Social Hub will give patients and their loved ones a space to unite, in a warm and inviting environment, dissimilar to the more clinical treatment areas. The space will foster a feeling of homeliness, and encourage connection at a time when patients and their families are navigating the difficult journey of cancer.
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!
