3 Why do we need it? Affordable, high quality accommodation for those seeking medical treatment and their family Caring environment on the hospital site Accommodation for those using the range of health services available in Albury Wodonga $65 million cancer clinic to be built on site Rotary Club of Albury North Lions District 201V6

4 Many people come in for treatments as outpatients, but over several days Side effects such as nausea, fatigue and debilitation often prevent patients from travelling home immediately after treatment Patients and carers are faced with financial challenges for accommodation. As a consequence, they use expensive motels, sleep in their cars or have a long daily commute. Extra stress is placed on both patients and carers Rotary Club of Albury North Lions District 201V6
