We raise funds for affordable self care accommodation for those having cancer treatment at Orange Health Service. We service a population of around 300,000.
Cancer Care Western NSW Incorporated was established in January 2007.
We continue to lobby Government for accessible Radiotherapy and Cancer Treatment options for the people of Central and Western New South Wales.
In 2011 we completed Western Care Lodge providing 14 twin ensuite rooms for those requiring treatment and their carers. The Lodge is a short walk from the treatment facilities at the Orange Health Service. Our current accommodation is used to capacity.
The modern Lodge is in a garden setting with outdoor courtyards, dining, kitchen, lounge, laundry and a library.
In July 2013 we commenced building an additional 8 ensuite rooms at an estimated cost of $1.4 million. All donations directly fund this development. Fundraising is well underway. We have obtained a commercial loan to enable the construction to commence.
