Griffith BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

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.

SHINING A LIGHT ON HEALTHY HABITS - QUIT SMOKING

Your risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, and voice box (larynx) is cut in half within 5-10 years of quitting.

Your risk of lung cancer is about half that of a person who is still smoking after 10 to 15 years of quitting. Your risk of cancer of the bladder, oesophagus, and also kidney decreases.

Quitting smoking lowers your risk of other cancers over time as well, including cancers of the stomach, pancreas, liver, cervix, and colon and rectum, as well as acute myeloid leukemia.

SHINING A LIGHT ON EARLY SIGNS OF CANCER - UNEXPLAINED WEIGHT LOSS

There can be some common early signs and symptoms of cancer to look out for.
If you notice any major changes in the way your body works or the way you feel – especially if it lasts for a long time or gets worse let your doctor know and get checked.

If it is cancer, you’ll give yourself the chance to have it treated early, when treatment is more successful.
