I was asked to document the construction of the John James Village, a residential complex for people receiving treatment for blood diseases and their families.
It was a great project to work on and I’m proud to have played some small part in this project.
Opened in 2016 in the suburb of Garran, John James Village provides a sanctuary for patients undergoing treatment at nearby Canberra Hospital for conditions such as leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and others.
John James Village is proudly operated by the Leukaemia Foundation.
The Village comprises 6 purpose-designed self-contained units and support facilities in landscaped gardens. Patients, their families and carers can live at John James Village for as long as required without charge.
The Leukaemia Foundation provides additional support and care from on-site offices.
