Great advocacy work by Can Assist for country cancer patients, at NSW Parliament House!It was a privilege today to provide feedback from our Can Assist community network, alongside Royal Far West Manly Sydney NSW, to the NSW State’s Select Committee on Remote, Rural and Regional Health. They are conducting an inquiry into the implementation of recommendations specifically relating to workforce issues, workplace culture and funding considerations for remote, rural and regional health.

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?
