In real life, I do discuss food exactly like how I write in my food review articles. As always my food reviews are scored only on what I've tried and the service expected of that type of establishment.

Fight Cancer Foundation was founded by John Opie and a small group of families devastated by leukaemia. Beginning as the Bone Marrow Donor Institute, for over 25 years the charity has worked hard on creating initiatives, providing low cost accomodation and support to patients and families affected by cancer. The foundation is behind initiatives such as the Australian Bone Marrow Registry and BMDI Cord blood Bank. It is currently partnering with The Royal Melbourne Hospital on further cancer research.

The John Opie House is one of 3 low accommodation houses that the foundation runs. It's only 5 minutes away from The Royal Hobart Hospital. John Opie House provides low cost accommodation for Tasmanian patients and their families, who might otherwise have to travel long distances during the course of treatment. It aims to assist those affected so that they can focus on recovery.
