Every month over a thousand West Australians get diagnosed with cancer. Cancer diagnosis is a life changing and stressful event. Treatment of cancer has improved over recent years to a dramatic level. We are in the path to make this disease another chronic disease. Due to effective screening programs we now more often diagnose cancer at a curable state. Even at later stages of cancer, treatment is taking this once rapidly terminal disease to a much more controllable and long standing disease. Due to these changes more patients diagnosed with cancer live longer and leads a productive life. Usual cancer treatment includes patients having blood tests, scans, seeing doctors and having long hours of treatment in hospitals. These factors add on a significant burden to everyday life.
