    Stepping into the shoes of country women!

    "Sadly I experienced the burdens of cancer while caring for my mum who lost her fight in 2015. What I know first hand is that being in the country makes access to healthcare support HARD and when adding cancer it becomes even HARDER."

What we do

We help ease the burden of cancer for country families throughout NSW.

How we Assist

Why we Assist

To lessen the inequities distance creates in cancer care and treatment for rural communities.

No matter the distance, assistance is never far away.

We Can Assist

Can Assist is committed to ensuring that all people, regardless of where they live in NSW, have equitable access to cancer treatment and care. By providing financial assistance, practical support and raising awareness of the inequities, our volunteer network ensures that country people are given the same opportunities and treatment choices as those who live in city centres.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our grass roots organisation.

Today, Can Assist has 3000 volunteers and over 55 branches that are committed to making the journey with cancer easier for all rural and regional NSW communities. Ensure our charitable organisation continues to grow by joining our team of men and women across the state who selflessly give their time and effort to assist.

This is Peter.

After retirement, Peter was diagnosed with prostate cancer, bringing financial worries without a steady income.

Cancer in the country is costly.

Regional men face a 24% higher risk of dying from prostate cancer than urban counterparts.

Meeting Can Assist volunteer Robyn changed everything. She made him aware of the support available to him and we were able to provide Peter fuel vouchers and covered his physio appointments.

Discover how you can aid more people like Peter at canassist.org.au today. 💛
