The Concord Survivorship gym is the only one of its kind.
The funding is very limited as at this point in time there is no funding from the Cancer Council.
Two days a week are funded by the Sydney local health district /Nsw health.
One day a week has been funded from the medical oncologist staff specialist trust fund. Which unfortunately runs out February 1,2019.
One day a week is from fund raising raffles. The fifth day is currently coming from the oncologists research group at the university for one of its research studies.
The gym equipment was bought through a grant 15 years ago.
This gym and the research being carried out there is vital in the ongoing support for cancer survivors. I will be having further discussions with the oncologist on Thursday im sure you will be happy to support it.
Thanks Patrick
