Program Overview: Change500 – Be the Change:
Change500 – Be the Change is an impactful program created with a purpose to provide support and reduce stress for individuals undergoing cancer treatment. This program encourages annual donations of $100 per year, which are tax-deductible.

Supporting people undergoing cancer treatment:
Cancer treatment can take a toll on both physical and emotional health. Donations received through this program are utilized to address various needs, such as:
- The cancer journey experience: This program seeks to make the cancer journey more manageable and comforting for people by providing a friendly face, reassurance, and the feeling of belonging.
- Financial support: The funds contribute to alleviating financial burdens caused by out-of-pocket expenses like accommodation, food, and transport during treatment.
- Companionship and care: Blue Dot Army’s dedicated volunteers may accompany individuals to medical appointments, providing a friendly and supportive presence. From sitting in waiting rooms to ensuring individuals are not alone during their appointments, the organization offers the much-needed hand of friendship.
- Supporting people from near and far: Blue Dot Army recognizes the considerable efforts individuals make by travelling to Perth from intrastate or across the country to access specialised cancer treatments. Change500 – Be the Change program ensures that these people receive the necessary support and companionship throughout their journey.
- Fostering a sense of community: Blue Dot Army’s goal is to cultivate a community of support where individuals feel cared for and understood, even if they are far from home.
