Lithgow BRANCH

Nepean Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Lithgow was formed in 2015. Our local area covers from Little Hartley to Cullen Bullen including Rydal, Lidsdale, Wallerawang, Portland, Meadow Flat, Tarana and many more small villages. No one is alone and Can Assist Lithgow provides assistance for expenses when undergoing treatment for cancer.

The majority of our donations come from the coal mining industry employees and the electricity industry employees. Many local individuals and small business also contribute to enable our group to provide the financial assistance.

Areas Serviced: Cullen Bullen, Lidsdale, Lithgow, Little Hartley, Meadow Flat, Portland, Rydal, Tarana, Wallerawang

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 supporters both from within the community and further afield. We thank everyone who contributes.

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?
