Each year The Grounds of Alexandria supports a charity, which we feel matches both our ethos and are close to our hearts. Below is the charity we are supporting for 2016.
The Chris O’Brian Lifehouse
Chris O’Brien was a man of leadership, vision and courage. He inspired people, both through his work as a cancer specialist and through his own three-year battle with an aggressive brain tumour.
Chris transformed his personal adversity into a national opportunity, using his experience to fight so much harder for cancer patients and their families. Chris’ vision was for an integrated cancer treatment centre, where patients will no longer have to navigate their way through all the different elements of dealing with their illness alone. His vision was realised with the opening of Chris O’Brien Lifehouse to patients on 19 November 2013.
Lifehouse is an integrated and patient-focused centre of excellence, offering everything a cancer patient needs in one place, including treatment, research, education, complementary therapies and psychosocial support.
We are currently planning our activities with Lifehouse, and once these are confirmed we will let you, and together we will raise money to help in the treatment of a disease, which affects so many people in Australia.
