Our vision is for all Western Australians affected by cancer to have access to support services and wellness opportunities in their time and place of need.
We believe everyone diagnosed with cancer in Western Australia should be aware of the benefits of the services provided by Solaris Cancer Care.
Our mission is to support and empower people with cancer, their families and the community to live well before, during and after a cancer diagnosis.

Empowerment: Creating strength through knowledge and support
Compassion: Be empathetic to others who seek comfort to alleviate the pain and distress of cancer
Respect: We will act in a respectful manner to all who associate with us.
Community: Working together to achieve our common goals
