Established in 2015, Reflections is a not-for-profit reducing the impact of ASBESTOS on the community.
Our key objectives:
- SUPPORTING and connecting fellow sufferers of asbestos-related diseases,
- Increasing AWARENESS of the ongoing risks of asbestos in our community, and
- Promoting RESEARCH into better treatment outcomes for mesothelioma sufferers.
One person dies every 12 hours in Australia from mesothelioma and an estimated 4,000 people from asbestos-related diseases. Western Australia has the highest rates of mesothelioma in the world and, likely, the most in situ asbestos of all the States.
Some of the world’s leading experts are based here in Perth at the National Centre for Asbestos-Related Disease. Reflections are proud to support their work as they seek a long-term treatment for the terminal cancer – mesothelioma.
As a 3rd ‘wave’ of sufferers develop, including home renovators (DIY) and tradies, ongoing community awareness is imperative. Reflections, in partnership with Master Builders, is actively increasing awareness through events such as Steeltoes & Stilettos which brings the risk of asbestos to the big stage.
Reflections also support sufferers and their families through regular, informal gatherings and access to resources provided by Solaris Cancer Care.
