Treatment Close to Home Makes a Difference

A mega donation of $80,000 from the SS&A has helped replace and upgrade much-needed monitoring equipment for the children’s cancer treatment space at Albury Hospital. One local family with a child who has been receiving ongoing treatment for a rare form of cancer says local fundraising through the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund has helped make the treatment journey less challenging.

For those of us who will enjoy a feast with the family this Christmas, the idea of ‘rescuing’ food might be a strange one.
