2020 Women’s Celebration Breakfast
In November we hosted the fifth annual Women's Celebration Breakfast in support of cancer recovery research at UC.
The Breakfast, sponsored by MTAA Super, shone a light on the unmet needs of cancer patients and carers and highlighted the progressive rehabilitation work taking place through the PACES (Pre-habilitation, Activity, Cancer, Exercise and Survivorship) Research Group.
Under PACES the UC Cancer Wellness Clinic is demonstrating that exercise during cancer treatment reduces side effects such as bone loss, fatigue, cardiovascular pain and respiratory issues.
The event raised over $21,500 for PACES. The funds raised will go directly towards the PACES Research Group and will either subsidise the cost of participants’ involvement in the program or fund further research.
The coronavirus is having a significant impact on our students, with many losing their casual work and struggling to make ends meet. The Student Empowerment Fund provides emergency support to UC students for essentials like food and accommodation. We would be grateful if you would consider donating to support students.
