Dry July encourages people to give up alcohol for the month of July and raise money for people affected by cancer. Read more about Dry July here.
Dry July raises money to ease the burden and reduce the stress that comes with a cancer diagnosis, and add a bit of comfort for those affected by cancer.
We help to provide things that may not be front of mind following a cancer diagnosis, such as assistance with getting to and from an appointment, somewhere to stay near the hospital, Wi-Fi access, and mobile phone chargers. We help reduce patient anxiety and the side effects of cancer treatment by funding services such as complementary therapies, wellness programs, and wig libraries, and by providing comfortable and inviting spaces for patients to inhabit while undergoing treatment.
Everything we fund directly benefits cancer patients, their families and carers. Our aim is to make a difficult time a little easier for those affected by cancer
