Proud Supporters of Daffodil Day - Let's all help beat cancer.

Daffodil representing Cancer Council Daffodil Day

The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre is a proud supporter of Daffodil Day.  

Friday the 28th of August is Daffodil Day and like many individuals and businesses we are encouraging all of our staff and patients to donate to this very worthy cause by purchasing a Daffodil Pin or a Daffodil Pen.

Money raised will help beat cancer.  As little as $5.00 can help give a newly diagnosed cancer patient important support and information resources to help them through their cancer journey.  $10.00 can help offer free exercise programs to help cancer patients build strength and fitness during and after treatment.  $25.00 can help transport cancer patients to and from hospital for treatment.  $50.00 can help fund a call to a cancer nurse on Cancer Council 13 11 20 that provides free and confidential information and support on all aspects of cancer.  $100.00 can help provide free accomodation to cancer patients, their families and carers during treatment.  $250.00 can go towards paying an overdue bill for a family who hasn't been able to work and $500.00 can help fund ground-breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

Of course, as a health care organisation, The Melbourne Sports Medicine Centre is also very focused on the prevention of cancer We aim to help all of our patients achieve a lifestye behaviour which reduces cancer risk.  We encourage regular health screening, limiting alcohol, eating healthily, achieving one's healthiest weight, being active and sunsmart, and of course, quitting smoking. More information about cancer prevention is available on the Cancer Council's website.

If you are in to see us during August, please consider purchasing a Daffodil Pin or Pen and help support this magnificent cause. Our Daffodil Day merchandise will be available at reception from the 10th of August.  Every item we sell will help make an enormous difference to the lives of those with cancer and their families.
