Much needed refurbishment at Shirley Crawford Haven

The Far North Community Hospice Shirley Crawford Haven provides a home away from home for the patient and their family / whanau. It is a self contained unit with bathroom, lounge/dining area, bedroom and kitchenette. Funds raised from the 2017 Dry July Campaign have helped to update the space at the Shirley Crawford Haven with comfy lounges, new carpet and blinds.

Mural brings vibrancy to the community

Thanks to funding received from the 2017 grants round, a beautiful mural was created by artist Sean Duffell at The Cancer Society Wellington HQ.

Patients, staff and visitors have commented that the mural brightens their day!

 

Treatment chairs at Wairau Hospital funded by Dry July

Modelled by our nursing staff, these chairs provide patients with a better and more comfortable treatment experience, and also help the nursing staff provide improved care. The new chairs are height-variable to make it much easier for patients to access them and have a range of other features to make their treatment as comfortable as possible. 

Waikato Dry July funds - for our patients

Dry July funds at Waikato Cancer Centre have benefited patients and their families.

A quote below from a staff member:

Below is a photo of the first few magazines that have arrived (there will be more!). I have just taken them down to chemo and they were very well received. I also had some more very positive feedback about the flowers so that's great!


Dry July funds Look Good Feel Better men's program

The program commenced 4th July 2017. The feedback has been extremely positive as we connect with communities introducing the new program.

There is much to be done to really spread the word and help generate an understanding of how the program works, and more importantly, how men will benefit. But we are very happy to have the program rolled out in the early stages and begin helping men face their cancer with more strength and confidence.

“A lady in the supermarket last week - who I didn't know came up to me and said " excuse me are you the lady who had your photo in the paper contacted to a Men's Cancer workshop?" I said I was. She then said " One of the Men who was at the workshop lived down the road from her and had told her all about it, shown her the photo and article, she wanted to say a special thank you to me for putting it on. The gentleman had told all his neighbours, she said he was very impressed. She promptly gave me a hug and said " thanks" and was on her way. A very special moment, I was walking on air for the rest of the day.” Robin – Volunteer
