Peak Hill BRANCH

Western NSW Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Peak Hill was formed in 1992. The branch is dedicated to supporting anyone in our community affected by cancer. While only a small team here in a small town, we are well supported by the community. Our main source of funding currently comes from the can and bottle refund scheme.

Areas Serviced: Mungery, Peak Hill, Tomingley, Trewilga

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 them for their contribution.

Yes it was absolutely great …thank you so much for you fabulous effort

What a fantastic idea and effort. Thank you Lily from CanAssist.

Well another year has passed us by which is going quicker every year but I’m pleased to say our fund raising for Can Assist has been fabulous.
Our Annual General Meeting has been held and we are delighted to welcome four new members, which is great.
I’d like to remind anyone who is suffering from the big “C” that they can contact any of our committee and ask for assistance…..there is no means test attached ….which is great….and we can look into covering any medical bills, chemist bills, travel expenses incurred as long as it is cancer related and you live in town.
On a lighter note ……on the 25 th of June a lovely young woman from town shaved her hair off for Can Assist

Cancer is hard, cancer in the country is harder. Cancer in the country presents unique challenges that can disrupt life for individuals and their families. Lucy from country NSW, was just 5 years old when diagnosed with kidney cancer. She needed treatment that was only available in Sydney, 400km from home. This meant extensive and repetitive travel back and forth to Sydney. Too often treatment like this requires the separation of partners and children, and essential support networks no longer nearby. Such logistical hurdles can lead to delays in diagnosis and treatment, exacerbating the physical and emotional toll of the disease.

When cancer strikes in rural areas, it doesn't just affect the individual—it impacts entire families. The demands of managing the cancer treatment brings strains, while the financial burden of medical expenses, travel and loss of income can compound the stress. That's where Can Assist steps in, providing both emotional support and financial assistance. By lifting the burden of medical expenses, travel, and accommodation costs, we help families like Lucy’s focus on what truly matters: their health and well-being.

This tax time, give to assist country cancer patients and their families just like Lucy’s.

Every donation above $2 is 100% tax deductible and gratefully appreciated.
