West Pennant Hills & Cherrybrook Lions Club Helps Fight Children’s Cancer

By West Pennant Hills-Cherrybrook Lions Club

Just a little can do so much

Dear Family and Friends

 

As most of you are aware, I am a member of the Lions Club of West Pennant Hills / Cherrybrook. The Lions Club is a community based organisation which is involved in various community projects such as medical research, youth programmes, bush fires and drought support.

 

Each year our Club conducts a major raffle to raise funds for the Westmead Hospital Children’s Cancer Research Unit . Over the years the Club has raised over $100,000 to purchase vital equipment for the Research Unit. These funds are usually raised through a major raffle that we hold from August to November each year. Due to COVID 19 in 2020 the Club could not conduct its usual raffle so the Club has  created a funding raising page in conjunction with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to raise much needed funds for essential medical equipment. 

Our goal is to raise  $27,000 for the  purchase of a Gravitational Brain Transducer ($15,000), pilot scans of 10 patients ($7000) and comparative MRE analysis of laboratory mini-brain models ($5,000).

 

Should you wish to contribute to this worthy cause please donate.

We're holding an event to raise funds for the Children's Hospital Childhood Cancer Research Unit at Westmead!

West Pennant Hills-Cherrybrook Lions Club has donated  to the Westmead's Children’s Cancer Research Unit (CCRU) to enable the purchase of much needed equipment for over 10 years  with over   $100,000 raised .

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead cares for several hundred young cancer patients every year. Of these, more than half are enrolled in clinical trials that provide access to drugs that have been shown to work. This gives young children and their families’ new hope using the latest treatments.

The West Pennant Hills-Cherrybrook Lions Club is a major donor to the CCRU, a position it has held for many years now. The Lions Club’s annual Charity fundraiser assists the unit’s equipment needs as well as support the dedicated team of researchers continuing their wonderful work. Due to COVID 19 in 2020 our usual street fund raising activity for the CCRU has ceased so we have created this funding raising page to raise much needed funds for medical equipment as outlined below. 

A contribution of $27,000 will generously support purchase of the Gravitational Brain Transducer ($15,000), pilot scans of 10 patients ($7000) and comparative MRE analysis of laboratory mini-brain models ($5,000).
