Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Cootamundra was formed in 1984. We have been described as the “silent soldiers of the town”, with many different strengths. We work harmoniously to raise funds to assist cancer patients in our shire. We are supported with donations from the most generous community which recognises the value of our work.

Areas Serviced: Bethungra, Cootamundra, Muttama, Stockinbingal, Wallendbeen

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.

Our Supporters

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

Calling all breast cancer patients from country NSW – have your voice heard!

Pink Hope is a metropolitan based breast cancer research charity. They undertake considerable advocacy work on behalf of patients and generate lasting results. They are currently conducting a patient survey that aims to bring to light the experiences and unmet needs of breast cancer patients in Australia. Given their patient contacts are almost metropolitan based we would like to ensure that they are also able to capture the unique impacts of breast cancer for those that live regionally/rurally.

All you need to do is complete this survey rebrand.ly/1734bcph-ca

Confidentiality / privacy is assured. It should take about 20-25 minutes.
