Steel-Line has joined forces with Channel 7 and Nicheliving to help transform the Buchan family’s lives. Our staff members were proudly involved in delivering a Colorbond sectional garage door to the well-deserving WA family.
Nicheliving and a group of generous suppliers successfully completed a massive home renovation. A small 3×1 home becomes a spacious 4×2 that included a whole second storey addition, a garden redesign, a new kitchen, bathroom and laundry and a complete interior overhaul.
The Buchan Family’s Story
The Buchan’s are a Perth family from Craigie. Iain and Desiree, their daughter Luna and son Robbie. Living a normal happy life, their world was changed forever when Robbie was diagnosed with Meningococcal. A rare disease is a potentially devastating infection that can progress rapidly, causing serious disability or death. The decision was made to amputate all four of Robbie’s limbs to stop the spread and save his life.
At 5 years old, Robbie recently started school. He continues to face many challenges in his everyday life and basic tasks are a struggle. To help Meningococcal suffers all around Australia, Robbie’s parents have campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of the Meningococcal vaccination. They fought incredibly hard to make Meningococcal ACWY vaccine free as part of the West Australian Immunisation schedule. In July 2018, their hard work paid off. The vaccine became part of Australia’s National Immunisation program. Not stopping there, they are still campaigning to make Meningococcal B part of the program.
When we learned the Buchan family was living in a home that was no longer suitable for Robbie’s situation, we set about seeing how we could help.
