“Recently I was watching a rerun of an episode of RPA, it was the episode where Chris O’Brien was talking about his vision of building Lifehouse. It had the holographic image of the building, well before it was built. Now that I’m working here, I’ve realised how closely the building does actually match Chris O’Brien’s vision. When you walk in it doesn’t have that hospital vibe, which is exactly what he wanted for patients.
I’m currently studying to be a counsellor. I love Lifehouse’s approach to holistic care and how it’s more about the wellness of the patient instead of just treating the cancer. I think when you’re diagnosed with cancer you go through a whirlwind of emotions, so having all the support services in the one building makes all the difference.”
