Go Dry this July to support Mater Cancer Care Centre

Cancer has a significant impact on our loved ones, which is why Mater has been providing the community with leading cancer care services for more than 100 years.

By going Dry this July, you will be supporting women to live their best life beyond cancer.

Mater’s Women’s Wellness after Cancer Program (WWACP) aims to support women within our care to not only survive but thrive following cancer.

The WWACP will help mitigate the considerable personal and social costs of treatment experienced by women with early-stage female-specific cancers at all Mater facilities.

This e-enabled program can be delivered irrespective of a woman’s geographic location; therefore, these benefits will apply equally to rural, regional, and metropolitan patients of Mater.

Thanks to support from last year’s Dry July campaign the WWACP team are excited to report they are well advanced in making all the necessary arrangements to ensure the program is ready for launch!

It is a heartbreaking reality that one in two Queenslanders will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime—meaning each day around 70 Queensland families are blindsided by a cancer diagnosis. *

Golden Tickets

If you have a special occasion in July, you can always buy a Golden Ticket. A Golden Ticket gives a Dry July participant a night off their challenge. For a minimum $25 donation, even a night off can still make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

Important Note

Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year. We advise heavy drinkers or people dependent on alcohol to speak with their GP before signing up to Dry July.
