Meet Alex from Bungendore. Diagnosed with ALL leukemia just shy of his 6th birthday, his journey was far from easy. From lengthy hospital stays in Sydney to ongoing treatments, the financial strain on his family was immense. That's where Can Assist stepped in.

Brittany, Alex's mum, found solace in Can Assist's support. From alleviating accommodation costs to providing much-needed assistance, they were there every step of the way.

Brittany's words reflect the profound impact Can Assist had on their journey: "I felt very supported by Can Assist, right from the beginning." It's a testament to the invaluable role Can Assist plays in the lives of country families facing cancer.

Together, we can make a difference. Join us in supporting families like Alex's on their cancer journey. Your contribution can bring light to their darkest days. 🌟
