Help for Nelson Cancer Patients

Dry July funds have been used towards supporting the Chemotherapy Suite and Whanau kitchen for the Nelson Oncology Service, through the installation of:

- Artwork 

- Sienna Vinyl Couch                                          

- Dishwasher - Single dish draw

- Refrigerator

All of which is aimed at making patients at Canterbury DHB a little more comfortable.

Improving Access To Information

Auckland District Health Board will use Dry July 2015 donations towards development of a range of cancer pathway-specific information including pamphlets, posters and online materials to empower cancer patients. Consumers will be involved in the development of these materials which will also be translated into different languages to increase understanding of and access to services.

Although a good deal of information is already available for patients, it is primarily in very clinical language. The aim of this project is to speak to cancer patients in layman’s terms and inform them of important options available to them during their treatment.

Transport Services for Cancer Patients

The Cancer Society of New Zealand will use funds raised by Dry July 2015 towards the provision of patient transport services by CSNZ divisions across the country.

Local Artwork for Northland DHB’s Cancer Centre

Northland DHB is using Dry July donations to purchase art work for their new cancer centre waiting area, as feedback from patients/whanau has been that the building is too clinical and has no colour to brighten it up. NDHB is working with the KohuKohu Village Arts Trust to engage local artists to submit art work in regards to cancer experiences/journeys.

Making a Difference to Canterbury Patients

Canterbury DHB is using Dry July funds to make patients at Christchurch Hospital a little more comfortable. Projects in the pipeline include:

- Exercise treadmills and bicycles for the bone marrow transplant unit family room

- Patient information system in the radiotherapy waiting area

- Maori and Pasifika artwork and magazines for Christchurch Hospital oncology ward

- iPod Touch for young adult radiotherapy patients

- Video walkthrough of the radiotherapy department to help patients to feel less anxious about their initial visits for treatment
