Can Assist is a grass roots, community based charity dedicated to supporting country NSW people and their families affected by cancer. Due to travel and accommodation expenses, it can easily cost a country family affected by cancer up to five times more than a city family just to access treatment. The reality is that many country mums and dads simply can’t afford treatment, let alone the weeks spent away from their family and work.
Our vision is that every country community, family and individual should have equitable access to cancer care and support services.
We provide financial assistance & accommodation to bridge the gap between city and country cancer patients, giving people with cancer in rural, regional and non-metropolitan areas in NSW the opportunity to have fair and equitable access to cancer care and support services.
Through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers across NSW and the generosity of individuals and communities, Can Assist is able to make a real difference to country families affected by cancer.
Thank you for your support!
