ABOUT Cancer Support Group, ACT Eden Monaro’s Own
The Cancer Support Group, ACT Eden Monaro’s Own is a small local independent charity that has been financially supporting cancer patients in and around Canberra for 29 years. They are a unique charity in that they take all types of cancer patients and at all ages.
Their youngest patient at present, is a 4 year old girl who was diagnosed with leukaemia in July 2015. Their oldest patient is a 95 old lady who has been battling terminal breast cancer since 2012.
ACT Eden Monaro’s Own works to ease some of the extra financial stress placed on cancer patients while undergoing their treatment. The support group helps pay for all their medication related to their diagnoses, chemotherapy accounts, prescribed dietary supplements, electricity and gas accounts, as well as supplying weekly food and fuel vouchers. The support group currently has over 950 patients registered with its work, and spends over $600,000 per year on patient expenses.
The Cancer Support is proud to say that 100% of donations and 100% of the proceeds from their fundraisers go back out into the community to help cancer patients. None of the money received is spent on administration or staff wages. They are able to do this thanks to a grant from the ACT Government for three staff members.
Next year is a very special year for the Cancer Support Group as they will be celebrating their 30th birthday. They could not have been able to achieve this without the wonderful support of the Canberra community.
The support group thank you for your donations.
