Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Griffith was formed in 1984. We are committed to ensuring that all Griffith people have access to cancer treatment and care. By providing accommodation, financial assistance and practical support we ensure that Griffith people are given the same opportunities and treatment choices as those who live in city centres.

Areas Serviced: Beelbangera, Bilbul, Binya, Darlington Point, Griffith, Hanwood, Rankin Springs, Tharbogang, Wumbugal, Yenda, Yoogali

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.

NATIONAL SKIN CANCER AWARENESS WEEK - GET SHADY

Sun exposure adds up day after day, and it happens every time you are in the sun. UV is responsible for more than 95% of all skin cancers in Australia. Even though sunlight is the main source of UV rays, you don’t have to avoid the sun completely.

Simply staying in the shade is one of the best ways to limit your UV exposure.

CAN'T AVOID THE SUN....
Slip on a shirt.
Slop on sunscreen.
Slap on a hat.
Wrap on sunglasses to protect the eyes and skin around them.

Check us out canassist.org.au/

Whilst the holiday season can and should be a happy time for families, it can also be a time of significant stress for those with a cancer diagnosis.

This Christmas we are asking for your help to raise funds to support our branches and NSW rural residents in need that reside beyond our branch network, so we can plug their gap.

Buy an extra gift this Christmas for someone in need.
