Ingrid Brown’s cancer journey is far from over.  With six months of treatment remaining, she would have loved to finish her chemotherapy at West Gippsland Hospital.

But, the one day a week service and cramped facilities, makes it difficult for Ingrid and other cancer patients to take advantage of a local service.

Where is the funding for a new West Gippsland Hospital, Ingrid asks in support of a community campaign.
