Cancer Support Group Gets Behind TransCare Services
TransCare clients who are attending cancer treatment will be a bit more comfortable thanks to the Scone and District Cancer Support Group. The group has donated handmade blankets and a folding wheel chair that will be available for clients of the Cancer Council program offered by TransCare in the Upper Hunter.
“The Transport to Treatment program is one we are proud to be a part of,” Helen Schlegel, TransCare Coordinator of Transport Services said. “It is a great service provided by the Cancer Council and we are grateful for the Scone and District Cancer Support Group for helping us ensure clients are comfortable and looked after while going through what can be a very difficult time.”
Having a folding wheelchair in the boot of the car will make safely delivering clients to their treatment easier for volunteer drivers. “The Cancer Support Group approached us to ask what we needed to help clients that we are transporting and we agreed that a wheelchair would be useful to help manage fatigue,” Helen explained. “They were already supplying us with the blankets that are a great comfort on both long and short trips.”
Transport to Treatment is a free service for cancer patients to attend treatment.
