Murrumbidgee Region

Assisting our community, locally…

ABOUT US

Can Assist Young and Boorowa was formed in 1988. The branch raises funds to provide financial assistance to people in our local community who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Areas Serviced: Ashville, Berthong, Boorowa, Bribbaree, Bulla Creek, Burrangong, Frogmore, Goba Creek, Godfreys Creek, Kenyu, Kikiamah, Maimuru, Memagong, Milvale, Monteagle, Murringo, Reids Flat, Rye Park, Taylors Flat, Thuddungra, Tubbul, Weedallion, Yannawah, Young

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.

Donating $35 assists paying hospital parking costs.

After a long drive from a regional area to a treatment centre it’s one more expense.

Can you give a gift this year?

Parking at hospitals for either patients or family members is 10 x times more expensive than your local shopping center.
This is a cost that most people never think of until they need it for accessing cancer treatment.

Your gift to our Christmas appeal will make difference for country cancer patients.

Can you add one more gift this year?

Adding one extra gift to your Christmas list this year could mean the difference between someone receiving lifesaving cancer treatment or not.
