Your support will have an immense impact on the cancer journey of patients & their loved ones...

Help build Your Space and make a difference today

Living with cancer and its associated side effects can impact on patients wellbeing as well as the lives of families and carers. Canberra Hospital Foundation is raising funds to support the build of a cancer wellbeing centre - Your Space.

Your Space is a Wellbeing Centre which will support people affected by cancer, and their family and friends. Your Space will provide complementary therapies, support and education. In partnership with existing clinical care, these new services will help relieve stress, reduce pain and anxiety, and help manage the side effects of cancer treatment.

Your Space is a dedicated Cancer Wellbeing Centre integrated into the Canberra Region Cancer Centre.

Your Space will help to enhance treatment, complementary therapies and emotional support for patients and their loved ones in one integrated facility. 

The vision of Your Space is one of a dedicated and nurturing sanctuary for cancer patients undergoing active treatments, also supporting their families.

One in two Australian men and women will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85.

Apart from establishing the physical Wellbeing Centre, it will be critical to develop an integrated, evidence-based Cancer Wellbeing Education and Support program that includes educational resources (online, print, face-to-face education) and access to supportive care services for cancer patients, their carer, and families accessing Canberra Region Cancer Centre (CRCC). 

Together with a consumer reference group a wonderful design concept has evolved taking the best from other centres around Australia and bringing it to life to meet the unique needs of patients in Canberra.

It will be a welcoming and comfortable space for patients and carers to relax, rest and create opportunities to meet other cancer patients and their carers, providing a much-needed respite away from the busy clinical areas and treatments. 

Be there for local patients affected by cancer - together lets make 'Your Space' a reality
