Global Civil and Mining have proudly donated $110,000 to 5D Clinics Foundation, an independent charity established to provide support to patients and their families so they can access world-class cancer treatments.
A cancer diagnosis is a very stressful time for the patient, their family and friends, treatments can often come at a cost outside the reach of many families, adding to the strain.
The 5D Clinics Foundation has been set up to ensure patients who require immediate treatment are able to receive it efficiently and with the dignity they deserve. 5D Clinics Foundation can assist patients with funding for all stages of the cancer treatment journey; from consultations, personalised planning, scans, blood tests, CyberKnife treatment, travel and accommodation, other recommended treatments and follow-up care. The targeted nature of the support offered by the Foundation has a direct and profound impact on patients and their families.
