ABOUT US

Can Assist Gundagai was formed in 1985. We assist with costs associated with travel for cancer treatment which may take the form of petrol vouchers, the costs of transport in the community car, travel by rail or air. The branch also makes financial contribution towards accommodation for cancer patients when under going treatment, for example at Lilier Lodge, Wagga Wagga or wherever the treatment centre may be. The costs of medications and dietary supplements may also be subsidised by the branch.

Areas Serviced: Bongalong, Bongongalong, Brungle, Brungle Creek, Burra Creek, Darbalara, Edwardstown, Gundagai, Jackalass, Jones Creek, Muttama, Nangus, Reno, South Gundagai, Tarrabandra, Wagragobilly, Willie Ploma

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.

Our 2022 AGM is this Monday, 20 June 6pm at the Gundagai District Services Club. New committee members are always welcome. ... See MoreSee Less

Local legend!!! Shae Smith recently cut her gorgeous long hair, all in the spirit of charity and selfless kindness. Shae had around 50cm of her hair cut, donating it to the World’s Greatest Shave to be made into wigs for cancer sufferers. In addition to that she raised money for our local Can Assist Branch.

So far Shae's fundraiser has donated more than $3,000 and there is more to come. By the time Shae wraps up her fundraising efforts she expects to donate around $5,000, which is truly amazing.

Thank you Shae 👏👏👏. Your generosity will go a long way in supporting local cancer patients. Thanks also to your fellow head shavers who contributed to the fundraising on the night.
