2 years ago this month i was diagnosed with a rare form of advanced staged hodgkins lymphoma. I didn't know at the time but due to the rareness of my cancer, survival rate was quite unknown. After 6months of horrible treatment, my cancer was gone. I'm still working my way through a slow recovery but every day with no cancer is a blessing. This is my way of saying thanks to Dr Adam Friebe, all the nurses and staff at Andrew Love, for doing everything possible to help me through this awful time. Please donate to help all those impacted by cancer.
Projectlove is a 2year fundraising campaign, raising much needed funds for the redevelopment of the Andrew Love Cancer Centre (ALCC) Chemotherapy Day Ward and Pharmacy. This redevelopment will make a big impact in the lives of people within the Geelong region fighting cancer. Projectlove will be completely community funded and is only made possible with strong local support. The target is to raise approx $3million to contribute to the redevelopment and to purchase new equipment in both areas of the Andrew Love Cancer Centre. In our region 2,394 people are diagnosed with cancer each year and 197 people are treated in the ALCC Chemotherapy Day Ward each week, as well as 600 medical outpatient appointments. Each patient however is an individual with an individual treatment plan and chemotherapy made especially for them by the ALCC Pharmacy. This pharmacy supplies over 16,500 products per year for patients treated at Barwon Health and since 2010, the number of items prepared and supplied by the ALCC Pharmacy to Barwon Health patients has increased by more than 80%. To keep up with the increase demand, the pharmacy needs expanding to ensure each patient receives the best individual treatment possible. The redevelopment will feature more space and updated equipment to provide clinicians and pharmacists with the best facilities possible. Additionally, the current Chemotherapy Day Ward needs expanding and updating to ensure patients receive their treatment in the most comfortable environment. #Projectlove 💗💗💗
