Grant will enhance cancer care
WE’RE proud to announce that 22 Queensland organisations working in cancer care have been awarded a Cancer Council Queensland 2015 Community Grant.
The program aims to improve the provision of quality cancer care by increasing comfort measures, enhancing dignity and privacy, and providing additional support and information to people affected by cancer.
Organisations that provide cancer care can apply for fund- ing of up to $ 10,000 to assist with their work.
The Townsville Hospital Cancer Care Centre has been awarded a community grant to purchase wallpaper murals for three radiation therapy bunkers.
Working together with these organisations enables them to offer specialised care to cancer patients, reducing the burden of cancer on the community.
Since the program was implemented in 2011, CCQ has injected more than $ 500,000 into hospital departments and community organisations.

The grant scheme is made possible by generous donations from the Queensland community.
Thank you for helping us to give back.
