Together we are working towards a cancer free future.

For our patients and their families Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is more than a cancer hospital; it’s a place of hope, healing and life. Our achievements are possible thanks to our generous and compassionate community of supporters. At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse our patients are the centre of everything we do.

Funding from Dry July has helped create a welcoming space for patients and their families to use while going through treatment for cancer.

“I walked in here with mum and mum burst into tears straight away….it has been done perfectly, from the actual designs of the rooms to the artwork to the furniture to the massive TVs… every single part has perfectly created a safe, non-hospital looking kind of environment.” Elliot (AYA patient)
