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.

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.

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
