Guyra BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Guyra was formed in 1995. The Branch is focused on helping local cancer patients and their families. Alongside mainstream organisations within Hunter & New England Health, we can assist with pharmaceutical, accommodation, travel expenses and other utilities to help ease the pressure often felt during cancer.

We are 100% committed to spending the money raised on local patients and their families but also in providing assistance to patients in communities without a Can Assist branch.

Our meetings are held at 3pm, on the first Tuesday of each month at the Guyra Bowling & Recreation Club. Our regular fundraising meat raffles are held at the Royal Hotel 6.30- 7.30pm on the first Friday of the month.

Areas Serviced: Backwater, Bald Blair, Baldersleigh, Bassendean, Ben Lomond, Black Mountain, Boorolong, Briarbrook, Brockley, Brushy Creek, Falconer, Georges Creek, Glen Nevis, Glencoe, Green Hills, Guyra, Llangothlin, Maybole, Mount Mitchell, New Valley, Oban, South Guyra, Tenterden, The Basin, The Gulf, Tubbamurra, Wandsworth

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.

They are conducting an inquiry into the implementation of recommendations specifically relating to workforce issues, workplace culture and funding considerations for remote, rural and regional health.

Thanks, Ms Skinner!Can Assist always appreciates when someone chooses to include Can Assist as a beneficiary in their will.

With one recent bequest from a lady named Ms Skinner, we have already in this financial year been able to relieve the burden of accommodation costs for four country families when staying in Sydney to support their loved ones when receiving cancer treatment. Can Assist's network is so grateful for Ms Skinner's thoughtfulness in planning a bequest within her will.

We ensure the benefactors' lasting legacy will meet their wishes in supporting country cancer patients in NSW. Need more information?
