Forbes BRANCH

Western NSW Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Forbes was the first country branch established in 1956. Our branch raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

We are very well supported by members, volunteers and the community of Forbes. We believe the community of Forbes are so supportive because they know all the money raised and donated is used to assist Forbes and district cancer patients.

Areas Serviced: Bandon, Bedgerebong, Bundaburrah, Calarie, Carrawabbity, Corinella, Cumbijowa, Eugowra, Fairholme, Forbes, Garema, Grawlin, Gunning Gap, Jemalong, Mulyandry, Ooma, Warroo, Weelong, Wirrinya, Yarragong

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.

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
