We recently joined Uncle Ivan at Campbelltown Hospital where the new Aboriginal Family room was named after him. Uncle Ivan is a regular at many major events, welcoming people to country at occasions as diverse as the opening of Minto Marketplace and the 24-Hour Fight Against Cancer Macarthur.
The I Quit Because… project is lucky to have Uncle Ivan’s support in sharing his story about quitting smoking, you can see it at http://www.iquitbecause.org.au/ We also love the artwork in the family room from Randall the artist.
The artwork plays an important role in ensuring that the community see it as a space that they are welcome to use.
Are you thinking of quitting? Talk to your local Aboriginal Medical Service, Doctor or Aboriginal health worker about options to help you. Don’t forget to ask about affordable patches (Nicotine Replacement Therapy). Stop smoking & let your body heal.
