Eastern Health is proud to partner with Bendigo Community Bank branches to support women undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.

During the months of October and November, the Coolheads fundraising campaign aims to raise $145,000 to implement a scalp cooling service at Maroondah Hospital.

Scalp cooling technology helps prevent hair loss in patients receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer.

Eastern Health will be the first public health services in Victoria to offer this service free of charge.

The campaign is being run by the Ringwood East and Heathmont Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank, with multiple fundraising events being held.  Among the events is a one kilometre ‘Pink Path’ coin line beginning at Ringwood East Community Bank and finishing at Maroondah Hospital to be held on Saturday October 22 from 11.30am.

For more information on this event, or to support Coolheads in their fundraising efforts, visit www.coolheads.org.au or make a donation at any Bendigo Bank branch.

Please get behind this very worthy cause.
