WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

The Pilbara is a ruggedly beautiful place but due to its location, it can be terribly isolating for those in need. REACH US – Pilbara lnc.’s mission is bringing ancillary support services to those battling Cancer and provide support to their families within our Region.

Whether you are newly diagnosed, battling Cancer or a loved one offering support, REACH US – Pilbara Inc. can help.
It’s important to us that family units remain together during treatment:

Domestic assistance

  • Gardening
  • Cleaning
  • In-home meal preparation

Family Counselling Services

  • Parents
  • Partners
  • Children and Family Units

Family days

  • Structured group activities that could include, BBQs, paddle boarding, bouncy castles, face painting etc.
  • Provision of tickets to local events such as movies, plays, concerts and dinners can be made available to those who are registered with us.

Travel assistance

  • Flight costs for family members that are not covered by PATS.
  • Airport collection and drop off

WHY REACH US

Tragically, in an 11 month period during 2016, 94 new patients were referred to the Pilbara Cancer Nurse.

This means that on average, there is a new Cancer diagnosis every 3 days within the Pilbara. If these patients lived in the Metro area, help would be readily available and free of charge.

Sadly, the statistics show that those diagnosed in regional areas, do not have the same prognosis outcomes as those living within the Metro areas; which is why our support is so important.
