The Zonta Club of Kyneton has been making breast care cushions since 2001. Zonta Breast Care Cushions are provided to people in the post-operative phase of breast surgery. These cushions have been distributed locally to doctors’ surgeries and Kyneton Health. The Club has made and distributed approximately 500 cushions in total. It is not only the cushions which bring comfort, but also the message of love and support to one woman from another through the enclosed postcard.
Central Highlands Rural Health’s CEO, Maree Cuddihy, said:
“The cushions provide physical and emotional comfort to our community nursing clients who are undergoing breast cancer treatment. We are very thankful for the ongoing support from members of the Zonta Club of Kyneton.”
Donna (President), Margaret and Nancy were presented with a certificate of appreciation today by Maree during their visit to the hospital with Alison Lowe (Community Nursing - Nurse Unit Manager) and Susan Jennings (Executive Director of Clinical Operations).
The Community Nursing team receives referrals from metro and regional health services for their hospital in the home program post-mastectomy.
