Thank you for supporting The Royal Melbourne Hospital this Dry July

Thank you so much for taking on the Dry July challenge and supporting The Royal Melbourne Hospital this year. We are pleased to announce that with your help we raised $16,456 for the care of our cancer patients. We are extremely grateful for your fundraising efforts and dedication.

 Your fundraising for Dry July has enabled The Royal Melbourne Hospital to purchase items for:

• Exercise Equipment for Haematology Patients – Exercise is an important part of a cancer treatment plan and its important that we have the right equipment for our patients to maintain muscle strength during their chemotherapy treatment:

• STEP Caring for Patients in the Right Place – By purchasing new recliners and a commode for leg extension, we can get patients out of bed safely and early in their recovery, as well as provide a comfortable and safe alternative to staying in bed. This will lead to fewer complications from being bed bound for extended periods and allow patients more comfort and dignity as they recover;

• 5 West Day Medical Unit items – Improving the patient experience of our ward by making the environment appear less clinical, and more homely, will have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of patients and staff alike, as well as making the patients more comfortable.

On behalf of all the patients and staff at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, and our ambassadors, the amazing nurses in our Haematology Ward 7B, we would like to thank you for your support and contribution and for making a positive difference in the lives of people affected by cancer.

Yours sincerely,

Allison Blahna
