They say rain is a sign of good luck. If true, The Kinghorn Cancer Centre has truly been blessed, and not only by His Eminence Cardinal Pell. The ground breaking and blessing ceremony on 26th May, officiated by the Cardinal, was a very wet affair. However, despite the mud underfoot, the event was well attended and marked with the ‘turning of the sod’ by members of the official party including Jill Kinghorn, Minister for Planning, Tony Kelly and Minister for Science and Medical Research, Jodi McKay.
An engraved memorial shovel was presented to both Mrs Kinghorn and Sister Annette Cunliffe, representing the Trustees of St Vincent’s, to mark our gratitude for their respective gifts of $25 million and the land for the cancer centre site.
