Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Coleambally was formed in 1992 and raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our local community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

A dedicated group of members who offer catering services for wakes, have open garden days, fashion parades and morning teas with guest speakers as just some of the ways we raise funds to support locals financially when diagnosed with a cancer.

Areas Serviced: Argoon, Coleambally

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.

Lilier Lodge

Accommodation Assistance

Lilier Lodge was purpose built by Can Assist and the Cancer Council NSW, together with the support of local and regional communities.

Lilier Lodge provides accommodation for people undergoing cancer treatment at nearby facilities including the Riverina Cancer Care Centre, Wagga Wagga Base Hospital and Calvary Hospital.

Thanks, Ms Skinner!Can Assist always appreciates when someone chooses to include Can Assist as a beneficiary in their will.

With one recent bequest from a lady named Ms Skinner, we have already in this financial year been able to relieve the burden of accommodation costs for four country families when staying in Sydney to support their loved ones when receiving cancer treatment. Can Assist's network is so grateful for Ms Skinner's thoughtfulness in planning a bequest within her will.

We ensure the benefactors' lasting legacy will meet their wishes in supporting country cancer patients in NSW. Need more information?
