Timeline photosSurgery in Sydney (1,100km return), 4 treatments of chemotherapy, 17 treatments of radiotherapy and infusions every 3 weeks in Wagga Wagga (260km return) over a 12 month period meant Anna clocked up hundreds of hours of travel. The financial stress and the added emotional strain of being apart from family whilst dealing with a life-threatening illness can be overwhelming. Anna is now cancer free and is a regular volunteer for Can Assist.

After more than 3 years of treatment, 50,000km or 500 hours of driving Tommy is now cancer free and fighting fit.

Childhood cancer is uniquely emotionally draining. The extra financial burdens for families living in rural NSW can be crippling – both parents and often extended family members needing to cut back or stop work all together to make the long journeys necessary for treatment, not to mention petrol and accommodation costs.

“We could not have gotten through without the help of organisations like Can Assist” Tommy’s Mum
