Thanks to generous funding from the Dry July Foundation and a community of alcohol-free fundraisers The Alfred has implemented a new patient accommodation program; giving patients and their loved ones and carers from regional and rural Victoria a home away from home.
Victoria's voluntary assisted dying law comes into effect on 19 June 2019. It allows a person in the late stages of advanced disease to take medication prescribed by a doctor that will bring about their death at a time they choose – often at home supported by family and friends.
A cancer diagnosis and a prolonged and intensive confinement to hospital can take an immense toll on a young adult’s life. Thanks to the Dry July Foundation, the amazing people who abstained from drinking throughout Dry July and the contribution of a number of community fundraisers, The Alfred has been able to implement a new adolescence and young adult’s breakout area and provide a space where they can relax and act their age.
In a world of ordinary, be extraordinary! By going booze-free this July you can support The Alfred in making improvements that will make an extraordinary difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer. Get involved and get your family, friends and work colleagues to sign up and make a healthy change in your own lives – all while positively impacting others.
