Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Tumut was formed in 1984. We are a group of community minded people who raise money to assist locals who are undergoing treatment for cancer. We provide assistance to cancer patients in the Batlow, Tumut, Adelong and Talbingo area. This assistance includes but is not limited to fuel, travel expenses, accommodation and pharmacy.

Areas Serviced: Adelong, Argalong, Batlow, Blowering, Bogong Peaks Wilderness, Bombowlee, Bombowlee Creek, Buddong, Courajago, Ellerslie, Gadara, Gilmore, Gocup, Goobarragandra, Grahamstown, Jones Bridge, Killimicat, Kunama, Lacmalac, Little River, Lower Bago, Midway, Minjary, Mundongo, Pinbeyan, Red Hill, Talbingo, Tumorrama, Tumut, Tumut Plains, Wereboldera, Wermatong, Windowie, Wyangle, Yarrangobilly

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.

5 year old Tommy Gill from Glen Innes woke up very pale in colour and with notable bruising.

After a visit to the doctor, he was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle that afternoon and diagnosed with Leukemia.

This was the beginning of a long treatment journey.

Distance should be no barrier to treatment. Can Assist supports rural and regional cancer patients across NSW access treatment.
