Dry July is proudly supporting Look Good Feel Better in 2019.

Look Good Feel Better is a charity that provides free, community-based programmes for any person, facing any cancer, at any time.

Look Good Feel Better Classes support cancer patients impacted by the visible and emotional effects of their diagnosis and treatment. The visible and invisible impact can rob patients of their identity. Look Good Feel Better helps to bring a boost, a day away from treatment, an opportunity to connect, and learn techniques to help them feel more like their normal selves.

Look Good Feel Better helps people with cancer to look and feel more like their normal selves. The classes include tips, tricks and techniques to help participants recognize the person in the mirror.
Participants take away packs and information to continue to use the techniques they have learnt in their everyday lives – whether it’s to return to work, the school gate pick up, a trip to the grocery store, a special event.

Funds raised through the Dry July New Zealand campaign will enable funding for even more Look Good Feel Better workshops across New Zealand.

Christchurch Hospital Exercycle

The bike allows patients to maintain a degree of fitness and prevents de-conditioning, they often sit on the bike waving and as some of the patients have said “keeping an eye on me “as it sits outside my office. The bikes are available to all the single rooms and on the floor above sits in the corridor, the table top exercycle is available for use in the family room and can be used by patients & family, often used during the boredom busters session that now occurs each Friday on the unit.
