The Mildura Health Icon Cancer Centre has marked six-months of operation.
More than 130 patients have already completed their radiation therapy treatment at the 12 million dollar centre, saving them an estimated 800,000 kilometres in travel.
Mildura Health Private Hospital says the most common cancers being treated are skin, breast, prostate and lung, with patients coming from as far as Broken Hill and Swan Hill.
Close to 3,200 individual radiation treatment sessions had taken place.
To further boost the care provided to MHICC patients, the Mildura Health Foundation was recently established.
Its first project is to raise over $3 million to build 10 patient accommodation apartments on land already purchased in Thirteenth Street, Mildura.
Since its launch in September, the project has raised over $1 million.
