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