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 more than 2700 volunteers and over 50 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.

EARLY SIGNS OF CANCER - FATIGUE OR EXTREME TIREDNESS

There can be some common early signs and symptoms of cancer to look out for.
If you notice any major changes in the way your body works or the way you feel – especially if it lasts for a long time or gets worse let your doctor know and get checked.

If it is cancer, you’ll give yourself the chance to have it treated early, when treatment is more successful.
