West Wyalong BRANCH

Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist West Wyalong was formed in 1988. The branch is committed to the local community and to the people who seek our assistance. As volunteers, we are like minded in our mission to raise local for it to stay local. We meet monthly and enjoy the fellowship created by our various fundraising events. We have established a strong partnership with many organisations and service groups which has enabled our branch to extend our support to the smaller villages within the Bland Shire.

Areas Serviced: Barmedman, Mirrool, Naradhan, Tallimba, Weethalle, West Wyalong, Wyalong

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.

Calling all breast cancer patients from country NSW – have your voice heard!

Pink Hope is a metropolitan based breast cancer research charity. They undertake considerable advocacy work on behalf of patients and generate lasting results. They are currently conducting a patient survey that aims to bring to light the experiences and unmet needs of breast cancer patients in Australia. Given their patient contacts are almost metropolitan based we would like to ensure that they are also able to capture the unique impacts of breast cancer for those that live regionally/rurally.

All you need to do is complete this survey rebrand.ly/1734bcph-ca

Confidentiality / privacy is assured. It should take about 20-25 minutes.
