Julie McCrossin: A prize-winning cake from the LINAC Bake Off competition

Lucinda Burke, Radiation Oncology Fellow at The Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre Westmead, shared the following post by Julie McCrossin, Broadcaster, MC, Cancer Survivor & Community Educator on X, adding the following

“Almost too good to eat!
Great way to take the fear out of radiation therapy is to use models and educational videos to educate before treatment!
I can’t say my cake baking is ever going to accomplish this… but I’ll happily admire the handiwork.”

Quoting Julie McCrossin’s post:

“A prize-winning cake from the LINAC Bake Off competition. This cake model of a radiation therapy machine was made by Dr Tsien Fua, radiation oncologist at Peter Mac Cancer Centre. The bakeoff encouraged cancer teams to use models to educate patients & families about what to expect in treatment. The mask is worn to keep your head still so the radiation hits the rumour precisely & keeps damage to healthy tissue to a minimum.”
