Cancer Wellness Support names Leura Wellness Centre after founder Robyn Yates OAM
On the 11th May 2020, Cancer Wellness Support celebrated 15 years in operation with the vision being to provide affordable, subsidised therapies to people living with cancer, their carers and families throughout the Blue Mountains and Penrith Valley regions.
As a celebration of this milestone, our Leura Support Centre, is now named the Robyn Yates Centre. This recognises the outstanding achievements of our founder Robyn Yates in establishing and expanding this vital organisation.
Cancer Wellness Support provided over 4,700 therapies in 2020/2021 and has provided in excess of 50,000 subsidised treatments to clients, carers and families over the last 15 years.
A small celebratory function attended by staff and supporters was held at the Leura Centre where the renaming of the Centre was announced, Board member Kevin Stapleton presented a nostalgic slideshow travelling through Cancer Wellness Support’s history, followed by presentations from the General Manager, Bronwen Johnston and Client Services Manager Viv Maitland.
We look forward to the next 15 years!
