Such an important addition to the services covered by FAS !mcCr supporting local mental health
The Monaro Committee for Cancer Research (mcCr) is introducing access to mental health services for local cancer patients.
While mcCr long ago identified that cancer treatment is not only physically taxing, but also financially challenging, particularly when travelling for treatment, the Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) was formed.
Through the FAS, mcCr are now offering support through mental health assistance as well.
“Given the increased recognition of mental health over the past few years, mcCr has addressed this community need by partnering with two professional services to provide access to professional counselling support that can make an enormous difference to patients’ overall wellbeing as they travel down the cancer path,” says mcCr president Karen McGufficke.
“The time is right and the technology available to offer a wonderful extension to the other assistance provided through the FAS. This is a true example of the funds mcCr raise going towards assisting those who truly need the support.”

After 8 years as our President, Sandy has made the emotional decision to step down from that role but will be remaining on the mcCr Management Committee - as our leader she has nurtured and inspired us to always believe in ourselves and to dream big ! Sandy has led by example and taken mcCr achievements to a whole new level, her favourite saying “Not everyone can do everything but everyone can do something” has become an mcCr motto.
Long term Treasurer Pat and Secretary Michelle are also stepping down from their Executive positions.
To these 3 wonderful ladies - our Committee humbly says “Thank You” and we love you xoxo ... See MoreSee Less
