A visit to Westmead before teeing off

March 20th, 2018

Parramatta Chamber of Commerce has selected Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF) as the charity of choice for their upcoming Charity Golf Day.

During a recent visit to Westmead Hospital, the event sponsors got a behind the scenes insight at how funds raised by WMRF are used in different areas of the hospital.

Paul Noppen, Darren Delaney and Mark Davis, from Noppen Group, together with Parramatta Chamber of Commerce Board member Rosa Bellisimo, visited The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre (CPMCC) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Westmead.

CPMCC nurse unit manager radiation oncology Noeline Ranzac – who is also a golf fan – thanked the sponsors for their commitment to this year’s event.

“Some of the equipment we use daily at the centre was purchased with funds received from sponsors and supporters of events like golf days,” Noeline said.

“The incredible generosity of donors funding state-of-the-art equipment allows us to improve the therapy of patients through their difficult cancer journey.”

At NICU, the sponsors met nurse unit manager John Whittaker who explained the importance of having equipment with advanced features available at the ward.

“A perfect example is the PANDA Resuscitaire, a machine that keeps a newborn at optimum temperature and has the ability to provide breathing assistance if the baby requires it,” John said.

“Thank you to Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, Noppen Group for visiting, and all the sponsors of this year Charity Golf Day.”

The 2018 Charity Golf Day in support of the Foundation will be held on May 8 at Oatlands Golf Club. Golfers and guests will play a round of golf and then enjoy lunch to raise funds to support medical research and patient care at Westmead.
