The cancer centre at Prince of Wales Hospital has had a serious makeover (to the tune of $114m) to benefit treatment and outcomes for NSW public cancer patients.
The Nelune Foundation (led by joint co-founders Nelune Rajapakse and Anna Guillan) has raised $11m of this over the past 18 months – with the centre renamed the Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
Last night supporters, friends and special guests attended the official opening of the centre at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick.
Guests included Nelune Foundation co-founders Rajapakse and Guillan, with Edwina Bartholomew from Seven’s Sunrise as event MC.
Other guests attending included Seven’s Sally Obermeder, Giaan Rooney (now 30 weeks pregnant), NSW Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research Brad Hazzard, Cancer Australia CEO Professor Helen Zorbas, iiNet founder and Seven West Media board member Michael Malone and wife Monika, Optus chairman Paul O’Sullivan plus John Hartigan and the family of the late Rebecca Wilson.
