Supporting cancer patients at the QEII
The Sunshine Room - providing dignity, compassion and support
Located on eleventh floor of the VG Site, Health Sciences Centre, the welcoming room, free of nurse call bells and intravenous poles, offers cancers patients and their families a supporting place where they can inner peace while undergoing treatment. It is also a place where they can access many complementary therapies aimed at helping them relax. Patients can get a massage, have Reiki therapy, therapeutic touch and reflexology, or try gentle yoga. Another popular service in the Sunshine Room is the salon service; patients can get a fresh haircut, a wrap or a wig fitting done by volunteer hairdressers. Today, the Sunshine Room has grown to support anywhere from 5 – 40 patients a day. Funds raised from this initiative will support the QEII Foundation to ensure the Sunshine Room continues to provide a safe haven to so many.
