5 year old Tommy Gill from Glen Innes woke up very pale in colour and with notable bruising.

After a visit to the doctor, he was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle that afternoon and diagnosed with Leukemia.

This was the beginning of a long treatment journey.

Distance should be no barrier to treatment. Can Assist supports rural and regional cancer patients across NSW access treatment.

One morning 5 year old Tommy Gill from Glen Innes woke up very pale in colour and with notable bruising.

After a visit to the doctor he was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle that afternoon and diagnosed with Leukemia.

This was the beginning of a long treatment journey. The Gills travelled over 50,000 kms over the course of Tommy's treatment, more than 150 trips in total. "I couldn't put a number on what we spent .... there was the time off work and all the extra travel ..."

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.

Guyra BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…


ABOUT US


Can Assist Guyra was formed in 1995. The Branch is focused on helping local cancer patients and their families. Alongside mainstream organisations within Hunter & New England Health, we can assist with pharmaceutical, accommodation, travel expenses and other utilities to help ease the pressure often felt during cancer.

We are 100% committed to spending the money raised on local patients and their families but also in providing assistance to patients in communities without a Can Assist branch.

Our meetings are held at 3pm, on the first Tuesday of each month at the Guyra Bowling & Recreation Club. Our regular fundraising meat raffles are held at the Royal Hotel 6.30- 7.30pm on the first Friday of the month.


Areas Serviced: Backwater, Bald Blair, Baldersleigh, Bassendean, Ben Lomond, Black Mountain, Boorolong, Briarbrook, Brockley, Brushy Creek, Falconer, Georges Creek, Glen Nevis, Glencoe, Green Hills, Guyra, Llangothlin, Maybole, Mount Mitchell, New Valley, Oban, South Guyra, Tenterden, The Basin, The Gulf, Tubbamurra, Wandsworth



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 community supporters. We thank them for their contribution.
