The John James Memorial Foundation, proud sponsor of Lifecycle, has recently committed to back a project to construct a purpose built facility in Canberra, to support cancer patients and their families during treatment. The facility, to be known as John James House, is planned to be located in close proximity of Canberra Hospital and will be operated by the ACT Branch of the Leukaemia Foundation.
The Leukaemia Foundation is excited with this development, which is a direct result of the tireless efforts of the Lifecycle Committee.
The facility will allow the Leukaemia Foundation to provide accommodation for up to six families at one time, as well as allow them to increase their support and counselling services to the wider region. This project is now in early design stages, with site selection and land acquisition underway. Once completed, one of Lifecycle’s primary long term goals will be achieved, many years sooner than originally expected.
John James Memorial Foundation is a medical charity which provides specialist medical facilities, services, equipment and grants on a charitable basis. The Foundation’s national programs specifically focus on rural and remote health, as well a local focus on supporting the Canberra region. Through a range of public and private partnerships and with the generous support of their specialist members, the John James Foundation is in a unique position to assist with the need for specialist health services and facilities in the Australian community.
Lifecycle is committed to continuing their support of the Leukaemia Foundation, with their annual Lifecycle event planned to be held between 18th and 20th October 2013.
