Masters Proud to Support COUCH in Cairns
The Director of "COUCH", Ron Holden, has written to Bulls Masters managing director, Jimmy Maher to thank the Bulls Masters for their support on the recent Tour to Cairns.
The COUCH Wellness Centre plays a crucial role in the provision of Cancer Care for those afflicted across the Far North Queensland region. Through the Bulls Masters dinner and fundraising efforts, we managed to contribute $10K to the Centre which is helping so many people throughout Far North Queensland.
Other major COUCH achievements include:
• Purchase of an Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) machine for the Cairns Hospital (in conjunction with FNQHF).
• Purchase of two Lymphatic Mapping Probes for Cairns Hospital.
• Purchase of L-Dex and Laser Equipment for Cairns Occupational Therapy Pty Ltd
• Purchase of a PET-CT Scanner for the Cairns Hospital (in conjunction with FNQHF). We have now completed construction of the COUCH Wellness Centre at Manoora.
The centre offers people diagnosed with cancer, and their carers, a range of complementary therapies and allied health services designed to assist them in achieving a more comfortable and optimistic journey through their medical treatment, and with enhanced outcomes. Fundraising and donations are the main sources of income for COUCH.
They do not pay wages to directors and our administrative services and costs are donated. We therefore incur no corporate overhead costs and this means that all funds raised or donated by individuals or corporations will be:
• used for the development and operation of the planned Cancer Wellness Centre, or
• allocated directly to supporting Cancer Patients, or • used to contribute towards the provision of services or equipment to Cancer Care community organisations or institutions at the discretion of the directors (as in the past). All support and every donation counts, and we therefore sincerely thank you for your personal contribution to that success.
Anyone else looking to contribute can donate via the COUCH website: https://couch.org.au/
