We are proud to fund pet therapy services at Bendigo Health, which includes a specific focus on our Cancer Wellness and Mental Health areas.
Our Cancer Wellness Coordinator, Jenna Sing, established a dog therapy program to support cancer patients, personally adopting a black Labrador named Sharlee and achieving her public access license for an assistance dog. Sharlee has been incredibly well received by patients and carers and is very happy to be back in the Gobbé Wellness Centre after her time away on maternity leave. In appreciation of Sharlee’s visits on the Wards, a patient has drawn this beautiful artwork to be displayed in the Gobbé Wellness Centre. So very talented, we love it and so does Sharlee!
We rely on community support and donations for the sustainability of the Cancer Wellness Program. You can help by making a donation today.
