Recently, Brent on behalf of Team Adem donated 4 blood pressure machines to the Oncology Clinical Trials Unit at Nambour General Hospital. The machines will be loaned to patients who are participating in a new trial and need their blood pressure checked on a daily basis, saving them many trips to the hospital or GP.
Clinical Trials not only offer hope to patients whose mainstream treatment options have been exhausted but they also play an important role in evaluating new drugs/ treatment options, in the hope of improved treatments and potential cures for some illnesses. Pictured with Brent are two of the dedicated Clinical Trial Team nurses Christine (green) and Karen
Lu, on behalf of Team Adem recently donated over six months supply of electrodes that are needed to run the Lymphedema L- Dex machine at Bloomhill Cancer Care Lymphedema can occur after cancer treatment when lymph nodes are removed from the body by surgery or damaged by radiotherapy. This machine is used to detect lymphedema by measuring lymph fluid changes in the affected area. If an increase in fluid is detected, early intervention can then be started. Lu also donated another 25 therapeutic massages which will be utilized by young adults who are receiving treatment for their cancer diagnosis. Pictured receiving the electrodes & a cheque for the massages is Bloomhill nurse Kathy
Team Adem would like to thank Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital (SCUPH) for their recent donation. SCUPH hold regular pre-loved uniform sales with all funds raised donated to Team Adem. As with the last two donations, Team Adem will be utilising these funds to provide more therapeutic massages/therapies to adolescents & young adults who are currently battling a cancer diagnosis or who continue to have ongoing side effects after their treatment. Pictured with Brent is SCUPH CEO, Oliver Steele who handed over the donation. Brent has been an employee at the hospital since it opened late 2013.
This Perpetual Award was established by Chancellor State College in 2013 (Adem’s old school) in honour of Adem for his outstanding contributions in helping others. Team Adem is also proud to contribute a $250 cheque to the Award winner each year. Julia is a deserving winner this year and has given much of her time to helping others in our community….well done Julia
