Over 300 patients suffering from Cancer and allied
diseases are annually under observation and treat-
ment at the Institution.
"The Institution has now entered on its Twelfth year
of usefulness and continues to be devoted to — (1)
The investigation of a disease so long considered as
incurable, with special reference to its causes and
cure ; (2) the advancement of medical and surgical
science in the treatment of Cancer, by preserving
the continuity of accredited remedies hitherto in
use, and adopting such others as increasing know-
ledge and experience prove worthy of confidence —
with the, view of obviating, if not altogether super-
seding the use of the knife ; (3) the relief and restor-
ation to health and usefulness of such patients as
are not incurable, and (4) affording isolation and
privacy to patients — particularly to females, whose
aversion to any exposure or publicity in their treat-
ment, not only accounts for much of the delay and
suffering endured before seeking relief, but is
answerable for the large number of hopeless cases that
have to be dealt with from day to day."
As hitherto, the Institution is conducted and main-
tained on the principle that all patients pay according
to their circumstances. To enable those whose cir-
cumstances do not admit of the usual charge, yet
are desirous of retaining their self-respect and indepen-
dence — arrangements are made by which the benefits
of the Institution are made available at the[minimum
charge of Ten shillings per week. As this charge,
however, does not meet the cost of accommodation,
maintenance, nursing, and treatment, the difference is
supplemented from the funds of the Institution. For
this supplementary fund subscriptions and dona-
tions are earnestly solicited and will be received and
acknowledged by either the Hon. Treasurer or Hon.
Secretary. All communications regarding patients
are to be made to Dr. Murray at the Institution.
