Cancer Patient Transport Service takes the worry out of getting to treatment

_MG_7937In July 2015 Gold Coast Hospital Foundation took over management and funding of a dedicated transport service for local cancer patients (previously known as Monique’s Bus).

With three new buses on the road, five days per week, since commencing this vital service has helped relieve the financial and emotional distress associated with regular treatment, travel and parking worries for more than 970 individual patients.

One patient who regularly uses the service, Lisa (pictured), said:  “I couldn’t have got through my treatment without the transport service.  I don’t know what else to say.  I have no idea what I would do if the bus didn’t exist.”

On behalf of the patients who cannot afford parking and travel costs and/or have no one to drive them to appointments, we thank you for helping fund this service through donations and sponsorships.
