Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Hay was formed in 1993. We are a hard working fundraising group of volunteers who help provide cancer patients with costs associated with their treatment. Patients from Hay, Ivanhoe, Maude, Carrathool and Boorooban are able to access help with travel, accommodation, medical and medication costs.

Areas Serviced: Booligal, Carrathool, Gunbar, Hay, Hay South, Ivanhoe, Maude, One Tree, Oxley

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 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 Supporters

Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and community supporters. We thank them for their contribution.
