ASSISTANCE – WHAT WE DO
We are here for every cancer patient – any age, any cancer, in rural, regional and remote NSW. Cancer can place an unexpected financial burden on families with increased associated expenses such as travel, accommodation and medical costs.
Our local branches will provide financial assistance and practical support during your treatment and care. They will work with you or collaborate with your health professional to understand how they can assist you. You are not alone in your cancer journey. We Can Assist.
ABOUT US – WHY WE ASSIST
Compared to those in metropolitan areas, rural cancer patients are diagnosed later, are more likely to die and seventeen times more likely to report geographical and financial barriers to care.
Distance matters – it creates inequitable access to best treatment options. No matter the distance, assistance is never far away. We Can Assist.
DONATE TO CAN ASSIST
You can nominate a branch for your donation and know that every dollar you give will go directly to that community, helping those in need.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
Please nominate the Southern Highlands Branch for your donation.
