The Gilgandra & District Cancer Fundraisers Inc. Group was founded in May 1995 with the aim of raising funds for the refurbishment of the Oncology Ward at Dubbo Base Hospital.

After the Government matched funding $1 for $1, the fundraising snowballed throughout the Western area with GDCF raising $360,000 by July 1997. A new free standing Oncology Unit was built at Dubbo Base Hospital.

The Gilgandra and district community continues to generously support GDCF on a daily basis enabling the group to work together in assisting local patients, their families and carer’s.

There are many avenues of assistance for cancer patients and we hope that the information contained on this website may assist the local community.
