Funds raised during Melanoma Bike Bash 2021 will go towards WA melanoma community nursing services

WA melanoma community nurses will provide free specialised support and assistance to melanoma patients, their families and friends throughout their melanoma diagnosis and treatment.

A melanoma community nurse can provide the following support to melanoma patients & carers:

  • explain the melanoma diagnosis and provide more information
  • attend health appointments, such as GP or oncologist appointments, with patients and carers
  • connect patients and carers to other health and social services in the community
  • provide ongoing support during melanoma treatment

Melanoma community nurses can be available for home visits.

The vital care provided by WA melanoma community nurses will allow us to provide more support and reduce the impact of melanoma on our Western Australian community.
