Fight Cancer Foundation’s BMDI Rotary House opened in 2003 and features 13 fully self-contained one and two bedroom apartments for families living with cancer. Catering for families of all ages, the building’s amenities include a communal lounge, gym, library, children’s playroom and teen retreat.
Situated in North Melbourne, BMDI Rotary House is close to Melbourne’s major treating hospitals including The Royal Melbourne Hospital, The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre and the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Families can stay in comfortable rooms specially equipped to cater to the isolation crucial for immune-suppressed patients who may require accommodation for multiple months during treatment and recovery.
The establishment of BMDI Rotary House was undertaken with the support of Rotary as a Multi-District project.
