Penny's thanks

Our Divisional Manager, Integrated Cancer Services - Penny Sanderson has some words of gratitude.

"Thank you sincerely for your support of the ONJ Walk for Wellness. What a fantastic result that you all contributed to in raising the funds for wellness programs and supporting people who are going experiencing cancer treatment and survivorship. 

Your support means that we can continue to provide care with individual and group programs that our patients tell us make a difference to their lives. 

The Wellness Team provide care and support by offering a range of services including massage therapy, art and music therapy for inpatients and for outpatients attending day oncology and radiation oncology. Brain Tumour support and Prostate Cancer support are two specialist programs meeting the needs of patients and families facing diagnosis and treatment that your fundraising has contributed to. Our exercise physiologists continue to provide programs from the Wellness Gym both face to face and online.  

While some of our services continue within the ONJ Centre for patients, we also have care being offered where possible via telehealth and other online group sessions accessible from anywhere which has resulted in some outpatients being able to access programs for the first time, especially regional patients."
