FANTASTIC night last night at the 2018 SPLICE art exhibition in ONTrac at Peter Mac Victorian Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Service.
.
Young people sold their artwork created as part of the pre-accredited creative industries program designed for adolescent and young adults, who have experienced cancer, to develop skills and prepare pathways into further education and work.
.
The program is an initiative between OnTrac at Peter Mac, @cae_melbourne and @rchmelbourne
.
Award-winning artist Mia Schoen has worked collaboratively with the SPLICE participants and the result is a collection of work which showcases the individual talents and development of the artists involved.
.
Well done everyone!

Today Peter Mac joined health services from across Victoria along the Yarra River as part of the @unitednations 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence.
.
Each of the health services brought their tree with messages of support for survivors and victims of family violence from their staff and patients. .
It was a very powerful moment to see all the trees standing side-by-side.
.
Peter Mac is proud to be part of the campaign. Violence against women can never be excused. It’s never ok.

Over the weekend Peter Mac’s  Box Hill campus had a very special delivery of their first Varian TrueBeam radiotherapy treatment machine.
.
This is the first part of the planned replacement of the current 2 linacs in the department.
.
Delivery was via a crane and through the site manager’s office on the basement level, followed by a very tight maze-like journey into the bunker.
.
Well done to the team!
