Every kilometre counts for country cancer patients.

For those in country areas, the distance to healthcare facilities can feel like an overwhelming hurdle.

Imagine having to travel this distance to go to the hospital you would go to, for cancer treatment.

At Can Assist, we understand the challenges country cancer patients face—often having to travel long distances for treatment, adding stress and financial strain during an already difficult time.

BUT we're here to help bridge this gap. Together, let's ensure no one fights cancer alone. Can Assist - Cancer Assistance Network NSW

Can Assist, can assist.💛
