St Andrews Hospital and St Vincents Private Hospital Toowoomba and Toowoomba Hospital

“Blush” was formed to raise important funds to support breast cancer patients on the Downs through the delivery of services via three Toowoomba Private Hospital Breast Care Nurses.  Our Breast Care Nurses offer an integrated bridge to wellness and are located at St Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital and St Vincent’s Private Hospital. The Nurses help breast cancer patients to navigate towards healthier lifestyles via education, practical and emotional support.

As a result of the business and community support over several years, Blush has been able to support new and innovative projects to support breast cancer patients and their families which has included:

  • Providing  every newly diagnosed patient with a Breast Cancer Care Package, in addition to educational resources;
  • Producing a Breast Cancer Patient Appointment Book which is a vital tool for both patients and medical practitioners;
  • Providing an exercise and breakfast series;
  • Planning of a Wellness Program;
  • Increasing the hours of work for the dedicated Breast Care Nurses.
