The Knox Club is supporting the purchase of a new 3D mammography machine for the recently opened Eastern Health Breast and Cancer Centre at Maroondah Hospital.
"A number of Knox Club members have been diagnosed with cancer and are patients at Maroondah Hospital," explains Andrew Jensen, Treasurer, Knox Club.
"We are proud that the fundraising from our annual Charity Golf Day is directly benefitting their treatment as well as helping other women.
"We value supporting the wider community," says Andrew.
"In fact, a number of our members have utilized the scalp cooling service at Maroondah Hopsital that we supported in 2017," he says.
"Our golf day is a very emotional day for everyone. At the end of the day, we ask anyone who’s had cancer to join us on stage,’ Andrew explains.
"It’s great to see everyone sharing that emotion, knowing our fundraising is staying local," says Andrew.
