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.

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.

SHINING A LIGHT ON HEALTHY HABITS - QUIT SMOKING

Your risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, and voice box (larynx) is cut in half within 5-10 years of quitting.

Your risk of lung cancer is about half that of a person who is still smoking after 10 to 15 years of quitting. Your risk of cancer of the bladder, oesophagus, and also kidney decreases.

Quitting smoking lowers your risk of other cancers over time as well, including cancers of the stomach, pancreas, liver, cervix, and colon and rectum, as well as acute myeloid leukemia.
