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.
