Bowel Cancer Australia Ambassador, Lara Bingle, took to the phones for the international brokerage firm ICAP’s 17th annual global Charity Day.
Funds raised have been used to provide the charity’s essential patient support services.
Julien Wiggins, chief executive, Bowel Cancer Australia said it was wonderful to have the support of ICAP for Bowel Cancer Australia’s support programs.
“Thanks to the generosity of organisations like ICAP, we are able to provide a range of tailored support options and care to patients and their families throughout their bowel cancer journey, when they need it most” he said.
Support services made possible through the ICAP Charity Day funding include:
• Nurse Advisory Service – a qualified nurse adviser provides help and advice to patients via telephone and email on all aspects of their bowel cancer journey.
• National patient-to-patient network – a voluntary network of people affected by bowel cancer, whether personally or via a family member, the ‘Love My Family’ Community matches up members with others at a similar stage of bowel cancer and treatment pathway.
• Patient information booklet – ‘Bowel Cancer Surgery: Your Operation’, providing information on the different forms of surgery available to bowel cancer patients, plus useful tips on preparing for hospital and returning home.
Bowel Cancer Australia wishes to thank ICAP for their generosity and support. Your contribution makes a real difference, and we greatly appreciate it.
