ABOUT US

Can Assist Blue Mountains was formed in 2007. Our volunteers raise funds to support patients treated or recovering from cancer and their carers, at a time when they may have reduced income and increased expenses. No one is alone and Can Assist Blue Mountains is ready to provide assistance for expenses such as utility bills, medical and household expenses, accommodation and in home assistance.

Areas Serviced: Bell, Berambing, Blackheath, Blaxland, Bullaburra, Faulconbridge, Glenbrook, Hawkesbury Heights, Hazelbrook, Katoomba, Lapstone, Lawson, Leura, Linden, Medlow Bath, Megalong, Mount Wilson, Mount Irvine, Mount Riverview, Mount Tomah, Mount Victoria, Springwood, Sun Valley, Valley Heights, Warrimoo, Wentworth Falls, Winmalee, Woodford, Yellow Rock

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.

Timeline photosSurgery in Sydney (1,100km return), 4 treatments of chemotherapy, 17 treatments of radiotherapy and infusions every 3 weeks in Wagga Wagga (260km return) over a 12 month period meant Anna clocked up hundreds of hours of travel. The financial stress and the added emotional strain of being apart from family whilst dealing with a life-threatening illness can be overwhelming. Anna is now cancer free and is a regular volunteer for Can Assist.

Help us to lighten the burden for country cancer patients and sign up for the CAN DO Challenge today!

After more than 3 years of treatment, 50,000km or 500 hours of driving Tommy is now cancer free and fighting fit.

Childhood cancer is uniquely emotionally draining. The extra financial burdens for families living in rural NSW can be crippling – both parents and often extended family members needing to cut back or stop work all together to make the long journeys necessary for treatment, not to mention petrol and accommodation costs.

“We could not have gotten through without the help of organisations like Can Assist” Tommy’s Mum
