Hillston BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

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

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.

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
