Drink up to build cancer support centre

BROWNES Dairy and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital are working to raise $100,000 for a new cancer support centre at Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital.

Brownes Dairy has donated $100,000 to fund the first stage of the centre and has pledged to raise another $100,000 though the donation of 5¢ from every two litre bottle of Hi-low, Low fat and Full Cream Brownes ‘Comoonity’ Milk.

The Comoonity Milk project will build a haematology clinic and integrated cancer support centre, the first of its kind in Australia.

The centre will offer a holistic approach to cancer treatment and will be available to all cancer patients in WA, regardless of where they are receiving treatment.

There is now substantial evidence that recovery rates, survival periods and quality of life can be improved for cancer patients who are given both orthodox clinical treatment and complementary therapies.

This kind of shift in the approach to cancer treatment acknowledges that therapies need to be tailored to the individual.

For Dr David Joske, head of Haematology Department at Sir Charles Gardiner hospital, the joint initiative between the dairy and hospital is the fulfilment of a dream.

The centre will also further understanding of cancer treatment through national studies into the benefits of a holistic approach to cancer treatment.
