Can we count you in for cancer wellness?

We have all been affected by cancer in some way. Maybe you’ve lost a loved one, or you know someone who has had their life changed by a cancer diagnosis. Cancer is devastating thousands of lives, but there is hope. Just as we are all affected, we can all be part of solutions.

The Cancer Wellness Program at Greenslopes Private Hospital is all about immediate impact for people affected by cancer. The program provides practical and meaningful support to cancer patients, their carers and support networks.

This program relies on the support of our generous donors. With your help we can reach more patients, provide even more comprehensive support and give hope to people living with and beyond cancer.

Please support cancer wellness at Greenslopes Private Hospital. 100% of your donation will go to the program, providing support and advice for cancer patients and their loved ones.


Elise’s Story

Elise was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2018. She spent a year receiving active treatment at Greenslopes Private Hospital. It was there she found a strong and supportive community through the Cancer Wellness Program.

“It’s not just about clinical treatment. There is so much else that goes on when you’re going through the cancer journey. If I hadn’t accessed the Wellness Program services and community I don’t think I would be functioning now. Medically I might be better, but mentally and emotionally I’d still be a wreck.”

 


Blair’s Story

GMRF Discovery Partner, Blair Smith’s wife Joy was treated at the Cyril Gilbert Cancer in 2011. Sadly, she passed away that year, but Blair never forgot the care they received from staff. ‘Greenslopes Private Hospital treats you like a person, not a number,’ Blair says.

To honour his wife’s memory, and thank the staff, Blair has counted himself in for cancer wellness at GPH. He and his daughter, Joanne, provided a significant portion of the seed funding for the program. Thanks to their generosity the program went from an idea to a reality.
