Since the Central Coast Cancer Centre at Gosford Hospital opened in 2013, Yvonne Crestani and her volunteer group, Scholarships in Radiotherapy have raised money to improve radiotherapy treatments available for patients on the Central Coast.

Since 2007, Ms Crestani has been fundraising for the Central Coast Cancer Centre, enabling selected radiation therapists to further their educational development.

This year, her group will sponsor Monica Le Motte, a senior radiotherapist at Gosford Hospital, to travel to Europe to study a revolutionary technique in the treatment of Brain Cancers.

The Scholarships in Radiotherapy Group will continue its fundraising efforts with a celebration of spring, the Twilight Soiree. The event will be held outdoors in the beautiful Japanese Gardens, East Gosford on Sunday, October 18.

The afternoon will include the melodic sounds of the fl ute, cello, harp and violin, played by local professional musicians Mary-Ellen Gillard, Joy Medley-Park, Sarah Fisher-Dobbin, Noni Ryan, Tim Beasley and Chris Casey.

An art auction of works donated by artists from the Art Studio Co-operative Gosford will be held. Refreshments and canapés will be available while you enjoy a stroll around the garden.

“The event will also feature demonstrations by Sandra Ross from Australia’s Garden Clinic and Jill Richardson from Taste of the Bush,” Ms Crestani said.
