Dry July Foundation helps refurbish accommodation units
Publish Date: 9/2/2017
The Leukaemia Foundation is pleased to announce the support of the Dry July Foundation, and its recent contribution of more than $20,000, which will be directed towards the vital refurbishment of accommodation units in Bassendean.
Thanks to generous
community support, the Leukaemia Foundation is able to provide the free
accommodation to people with blood cancer and their families and the funding
from the Dry July Foundation will greatly assist the Leukaemia Foundation to
continue to improve its services and support.
“The purchase, installation and replacement of furniture and whitegoods for our accommodation units will ensure we continue to provide people with blood cancer and their families with the best possible type of accommodation while they stay in their ‘home away from home’,” explained Andrew York, General Manager WA.
Of the broad range of practical care and support offered by the Leukaemia Foundation to people with blood cancer and their families, accommodation is one of the most meaningful.
Having a ‘home away from home’, provided at no charge, is an enormous relief in so many ways for regional and rural patients and their families who suddenly find they have to drop everything and relocate to Perth for life-saving treatment.
“The Leukaemia Foundation greatly appreciates the funding support from the Dry July Foundation and looks forward to continuing to support people with blood cancer and their families through our range of practical support services, including the refurbished accommodation facilities,” said Andrew.
Dry July raises money to ease the burdens faced by people diagnosed with cancer and to help reduce stress and add comfort for those affected. With the aim to make a difficult time a little easier, Dry July funding directly benefits people with cancer and their families and carers.
