Can Assist Harden – Murrumburrah was formed in 2000 when it broke away from the Young and Boorowa branch following a very generous donation from the O’Connor family. Our branch is very generous with support and we are committed to ensuring that people within our community have access to cancer treatment and care. By providing accommodation, financial assistance and practical support we ensure that the same opportunities and treatment choices are afforded to our residents as those who live in city centres.
Our membership has grown considerably over the last ten years as we welcome and encourage younger members of the community to assist in fundraising for us. Every year we hold a major fundraiser and we have now claimed the 1st weekend of March every year as “Can Assist Weekend”. Various events including Dancing With the Locals in 2019 provide our continuing funds with fantastic support from the local community and businesses. Our events are important social gatherings for our community with all ages encouraged to be involved or attend. Every dollar raised stays local to assist!
YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE.

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 provides accommodation for people undergoing cancer treatment at nearby facilities including the Riverina Cancer Care Centre, Wagga Wagga Base Hospital and Calvary Hospital.
Purpose built by Can Assist and the Cancer Council NSW, with the support of local and regional communities, it is managed by Can Assist. The 21 bed lodge is a warm and supportive home away from home.
Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and community supporters. We thank them for their contribution.
Located in Wagga Wagga, Lilier Lodge provides relaxing and homely accommodation for people undergoing cancer treatment to nearby facilities. They understand the specific needs of cancer patients and their carers.
