A huge thank you

The Grafton Breast Cancer Support Group would like to thank our Clarence Valley community for your support and financial contributions this year. You have helped us raise funds to cover the cost of many lymphodoema sleeves, scans, vouchers and wigs this year.

Thanks also to our active members who have worked really hard, attending meetings, purchasing vouchers, networking with the community and growing and selling plants at our Jacaranda Thursday market stall. These folk and their partners are amazing.

The biggest vote of thanks goes to the South Grafton District Servicemen’s Club, the secretary manager, Debbie Welsh and all of the staff and board.
The club enables us to hold our monthly meetings and store some of our gear. We have also been privileged to gain funds through their grant process.
This has enabled us to continue helping breast cancer survivors and their families throughout the Valley.

We have funds available to help, during and after treatment. If you need any help, please contact us.
Funds raised by the support group can also be accessed via Grafton Base Hospital oncology department through our McGrath Breast Care nurse, Cathy Brophy.
Funds are given for transport costs, the purchase of wigs (these are also available for borrowing through the oncology wig library),
purchase of a replacement lymphodoema sleeve or a house clean. Financial support for other out of pocket treatment costs (scans, medications etc.) may also be available,

There will be no meeting in December, but we will be resuming in 2020 on Friday January 3at the South Grafton District Ex-Servicemen’s Club, 2 Wharf Street, South Grafton at 10am.
Thank you all very much.
