Warrnambool cancer community organisation, Peter’s Project, this week received a donation of $50,000 from Icon Group as part of four-year pledge to support their unique cancer survivorship program. The commitment will see a total of $200,000 invested in the program over the next four years by the local radiation oncology provider. Icon’s donation matches funds currently contributed by Epworth Medical Foundation and a number of local groups.
The bespoke program allows local cancer patients to have access to their own survivorship nurse from the South West Regional Cancer Centre (SWRCC) to support them following treatment. Patients receive tailored care and access to an online portal which includes education information relevant to them.
