Dry July brings Cancer Wellness Initiative to life

Friday 09 August 2019

The PA Research Foundation was proud to participate in Dry July again this year to help raise funds to develop the PAH Cancer Wellness Initiative at the PA Hospital.

The Cancer Wellness Initiative aims to develop services in Queensland where people with cancer are enabled, nurtured and empowered to access evidence-based support at a time and place that works for individual needs.

The ultimate aim is to create a Wellness Space within the PA Hospital matching the interests of patients to programs to support their treatment and journey. The Wellness Space will be a retreat for all people with cancer and their families at the PA Hospital. The first stage of this initiative is to provide access to activities such as cooking classes, yoga and gym and to build on our Virtual Wellness Portal.

Thank you to our 102 Dry July participants who raised an incredible $45,946 towards making the Cancer Wellness Initiative a reality; helping to enrich the lives of cancer patients within the PA Hospital, and Queensland. There is still time to support the Dry July Campaign, donate here.
