In just a few short weeks, patients and their families affected by cancer will be closer to receiving the extra support they need.
And it’s all thanks to you!
Over the past two years, the South Australian community has rallied together to raise the $500,000 needed to open a Cancer Wellness Centre on the ground floor of the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer (FCIC) to help ease the burden of cancer on patients and their loved ones.
The centre will be the focal point of a cancer wellness program, addressing many of the unmet needs of cancer patients and their families during and after cancer treatment, many of which can be life-long. It’s been a collective effort, from your individual donations, to support from corporate businesses and fundraisers in the community. In addition,
generous organisations like Dry July Foundation have also got on board. Mix102.3’s Breakfast duo, Jodie and Soda, even went one step further, setting a world-record for the amount of time spent on a ferris wheel and raising $230,000 in the process.
It simply wouldn’t have been possible without your generous support. Thank you! This centre will mean so much to the 2,500 patients diagnosed with cancer at Flinders each year, and the thousands more who regularly visit the centre for ongoing treatment and appointments.
Flinders Foundation acknowledges the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the land on which the Flinders precinct was established. We acknowledge the Kaurna people’s deep and ongoing connection to land, waters and community, and pay our respect to their Elders, past and present.
