The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre
The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre is a partnership between Austin Health and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute. They are a comprehensive cancer centre, meaning they not only treat cancer but also carry out breakthrough research and clinical trials.
The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre work to help patients live better with cancer and defeat it through world class treatment, integrated research, leading clinical trials and tailored wellness programs.
Volunteers at the ONJ Centre are an important part of the team supporting patients, carers and visitors. The volunteer’s role is to enact the ONJ Centre vision statement “You Matter,” helping to make sure every patient, carer, relative and visitor feel that they are cared for. Whether it is a smile, a friendly chat, or providing information about programs and services, volunteers can easily help to ease some of the emotional stress and anxiety experienced by patients and their loved ones by providing practical and emotional support.
There are many ways to help aside from volunteering. Visit the website and see how your support can make a difference.
