Waikato Hospital Oncology Team

$2,221.85 raised

We believe in Dry July's vision to ease the burden of cancer for every New Zealander affected. Everything funded directly benefits these individuals and our oncology department at Waikato Hospital has seen firsthand the benefits of this campaign, receiving a grant to purchase sky ceiling panels for the new linear accelerator bunker for patients to view when receiving their radiation therapy treatment. Other funding went to our Adolescent and Young Adult community where a Playstation 4 and 10 games were purchased for the Youth Pad, accessible to young adults undergoing any form of cancer treatment. The remainder of the funds are aimed to further aid the 'Refresher Project' of the Radiation Therapy Waiting Room of refurbishing old waiting room chairs for the oncology patients. It will modernise the area so that all the patients are in a more pleasant environment for what can be hours in the department.

How can you help? This is the first year our hospital has participated and we would love anyone to be involved by signing up to our Waikato Hospital Team: http://www.dryjuly.co.nz/teams/waikato-radiation-therapy-department

If giving up alcohol for a month doesn't appeal to you, supporting our team through any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated. Please let your family and friends know about this cause and we aim to make this year a successful campaign so we can continue benefiting our patients.
