Earlier this year as a celebration of Northern Health providing 10 years of oncology services, the Northern Health Foundation started the Day Oncology Appeal to raise $50,000 for a Scalp Cooling Machine.
With thanks to the support of generous groups such as Bev Carman and her Cando Group, the Josie Minniti Fun Group, the Craigieburn Basketball Association and Epping Views Primary School as well as many generous individuals, we were able to not only hit our target of purchasing the Scalp Cooling Machine, we are well on our way to purchasing our second!
So what does a Scalp Cooling Machine do?
The use of scalp cooling is proven to be an effective way of combating chemotherapy induced hair loss and can result in a high level of retention or completely preserve the hair. For patients, this means the opportunity to regain some control, maintain their privacy and encourage a positive attitude towards treatment.
You can help us purchase our second machine. Your donation will help us buy the machines and offer the scalp cooling treatment immediately.
