I need your help to bring an affordable, world class radiotherapy cancer treatment service to the residents of the Great Southern!
Currently, there is NO radiation oncology service available to people living with cancer in the Great Southern region of WA.
Patients requiring radiotherapy must relocate to Perth or Bunbury to complete their four to six week cancer treatment period.
Sadly, this long distance travel, separation from loved ones and costs associated with treatment causes some people to decline this potentially life-saving therapy.
The Federal Government has granted $6.6 million to Genesis Cancer Care to help create a world class radiation oncology facility right here in Albany.
For this to happen, it will require the cooperation of all levels of Government.
I join Federal Health Minister, Hon. Greg Hunt MP in calling on the state government to establish this much-needed service as soon as possible
I need your help to bring an affordable, world class radiotherapy service to the residents of the Great Southern.
