Members of the Moree Cancer Support Group members, Wendy Long and Val Lemmon, visited the Outreach Chemotherapy Service at Moree to take a look at brand  new treatment chairs.

The cancer support group donated $17,700 for the Moree District Health Service to purchase these modern, comfortable and user friendly treatment chairs.

Gail Quinn was receiving treatment in one of these chairs at the time of Wendy and Val’s visit.

She commented that the chairs are absolutely amazing and so comfortable.

Gail is also thrilled with the new Outreach Chemotherapy treatment area.

“This new area is much more spacious than the previous area.

“It enables more privacy and even more importantly, there is plenty of room for a family member to sit with me whilst I am having treatment.”

Gail also recounted that she can receive the same chemotherapy care in Moree as she would if she went to Sydney for treatment.

“The unit is Moree is amazing and the staff are so friendly and professional”.

Wendy Long and Val Lemmon recounted that they were very proud to be able to assist in enhancing the comfort of those receiving treatments in the Outreach Chemotherapy Unit and the refurbished Specialists Clinics.
