'A Celebration of Life'

Patients participating in our haematology clinical research trials were brought together with their specialists and nurses at a special event 'A Celebration of Life' on Friday 31 March 2017.

The cocktail party was held at the Hospital on the Haematology Terrace, which was transformed into a beautiful function space for the evening. The event was sponsored by Navarra Venues, which supplied the wonderful food and Angelo's on the Bay, which donated the wine.

" 'A Celebration of Life' was just that! A wonderful opportunity to celebrate with our patients and thank them for the trust they place in our care by taking part in our clinical research trials," said A/P Judith Trotman, Director Haematology Clinical Research Unit.

"It was also a fantastic opportunity for our patients to dress up and socialise with those who provide their care in an informal environment. Some of our patients also publicly shared their stories with everyone who was present, which really helped bring to life the positive impact that our research has on our patients and their families," she said.

Here are a few photos from a truly memorial evening that was enjoyed by all.
