Uralla BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Uralla was formed in 2000. The Branch provides financial support to cancer patients and their families who live in the Uralla Shire area. All funds raised by the community are spent to support local patients. Raised here stays here!

We thank everyone for their support at our various fundraising events including the annual family and fishing fund day, our street store and wood raffle and the bowls day.

Areas Serviced: Abington, Arding, Bakers Creek, Balala, Boorolong, Briarbrook, Bundarra, Camerons Creek, Dangarsleigh, Dumaresq, Gostwyck, Inveergowrie, Kellys Plains, Kingstown, Mihi, Rocky River, Salisbury Plains, Saumarez, Torryburn, Uralla, Yarrowyck

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. Can Assist expresses our thanks.

Regional Australia Bank Community Partnership.

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
