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.

Utility bills aren't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cancer related costs.

However, it is something that becomes an added stress once you've paid for prescriptions, travel to treatment and all the other unexpected costs.

If you live in rural or regional NSW, we provide financial assistance with cancer related costs.

Another successful Tom Wells Memorial Fishing Trip weekend!

Roddy and Mike are pictured here giving a very generous donation of $1,350 to CanAssist Gundagai committee members, Graeme and Glen, following a few days in Merimbula. This year the 24 who attended did not have much luck with their fishing, but still managed to have a wonderful couple of days relaxing in each other’s company. Their continued generosity will assist our branch immensely. Thanks so much everyone!
