Finley BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Finley was formed in 2018. Finley is a small township in the Southern Riverina. We provide practical support and financial assistance to a wide area including Finley, Berrigan, Jerilderie, Oaklands and Savernake communities. Our cancer patients need to travel two hours to Albury, an hour and a half to Shepparton, two and a half hours to Wagga Wagga, three hours to Melbourne and in some cases seven hours to Sydney.

Our local people, businesses and industries are all extremely generous and supportive to our cause.

Areas Serviced: Berrigan, Blighty, Finley, Jerilderie, Logie Brae, Myrtle Park, Oaklands, Retreat, Savernake

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.

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.

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
