The Royal Melbourne Hospital opened a new 32 bed state-of-the-art cancer ward in April. The hospital will use funds raised through Dry July 2016 to purchase new recliners which will complement the space available in each inpatient room and allow family and friends to be comfortable when visiting for an extended period of time.

Meet Amy…One of many inspirational Royal Melbourne cancer patients
Being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was a huge shock to Amy and her family. Amy went to her doctor for some chest pain and a few days later she found herself beginning chemotherapy. After chemotherapy, Amy underwent a bone marrow transplant and thankfully, is on the road to recovery. It was a long and painful process and she was scared, but Amy said that if it wasn’t for the support of her loving family, and the wonderful staff at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, she wouldn’t be here today.
“Please support The Royal Melbourne this Dry July. It’s a great way to help RMH cancer patients and services. They need all the resources that they can get. The more resources they get the more comfortable the patients are and it makes a real difference to patients like me. The staff genuinely care about your health and wellbeing and they try to do everything for you. I am so grateful to everyone at The Royal Melbourne, they’re incredible.” Amy.
