Armidale BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Armidale was formed in 2000. The active membership base raises funds to provide timely and much needed financial assistance to people in our local community who are undergoing cancer treatment. The branch works closely with the Hunter New England Health Social workers and Aboriginal support workers.

Financial Assistance

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.

Our Supporters

Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and community supporters. We thank them for their contribution.

5 year old Tommy Gill from Glen Innes woke up very pale in colour and with notable bruising.

After a visit to the doctor, he was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle that afternoon and diagnosed with Leukemia.

This was the beginning of a long treatment journey.

Distance should be no barrier to treatment. Can Assist supports rural and regional cancer patients across NSW access treatment.
