Pink Angels donates machine to Lourdes Hospital
FOLLOWING recent donations from the Rotary Club of South Dubbo’s Destination Outback Event and the Cromwell Property Group, Pink Angels were able to donate a much needed LX2 Laser Biomodulation Machine to Dubbo Lourdes Hospital at a cost of $7500, and also an adjustable arm wrap for patients suffering from lymphoedema.
The machine will be used in the treatment of radiation fibrosis, pain and oedema in breast cancer patients in our local area.
The machine offers treatment for breast lymphoedema which can be very difficult to treat.
The donation was presented to Brenda Svensson, Occupational Therapist and Lymphoedema Nurse at Lourdes Hospital on Wednesday, October 10.
