Wearing masks did not get in the way of the MePACS team gathering around the staff kitchen table today in a COVIDSafe way, raising funds for cancer services at Peninsula Health.

Take a Break for Cancer holds a special place in the heart of Training and Development Team Leader Bree Ambry, who did not hesitate to bring in some sweet treats to the Chelsea Heights office.

“For me it’s a way of giving back and thanking the staff at both the Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals who provided care to my mum Meredith,” says Bree.

“Not only the second year of her breast cancer treatment, but also the support provided to us as a family in the final stages of her cancer fight.”

Patients with cancer continue to receive timely, comprehensive and compassionate care here in our community amid the current global health crisis.

This year Take a Break for Cancer returns, raising funds for local cancer services at Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals.

Make a difference and support high quality cancer treatment and help support us as we continue to provide important, world-class cancer services locally.

Being able to access cancer services – including tests, scans, treatment and check-ups – close to home is invaluable for the one in four people on the Mornington Peninsula that will be affected by cancer.
