Can Assist travel assistance

2.5 yrs and 24,000 km later 7 year old Ashleigh’s treatment continues; 48 separate 345km return trips to Newcastle for Radiotherapy alone.

Mum stopped work, Dad dropped back to part time and Nanna left her part time job altogether to help out with Ashleigh’s 3-year-old brother Ben. A 20 minute radiotherapy treatment takes a full day to access if you live in Taree. Adding financial stress at such an emotional time can be crippling.

“Without the help of Can Assist, the community and not for profit accommodation facilities I don’t know now how we would cope.”
