Can Assist Hillston was formed in 1996. We care for people and their families living with a cancer diagnosis in our local government area of the Carrathool Shire. We also reach out to embrace the people from Ivanhoe who are without a local branch of Can Assist.
Areas Serviced: Binya, Carrathool, Goolgowi, Gunbar, Hillston, Ivanhoe, Lake Brewster, Lake Cargelligo, Merriwagga, Monia Gap, Mossgiel, Ranking Springs, Roto, Tabbita, Trida, Wallanthery
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.
