Can Assist

Supporting Country NSW

Can Assist is committed to ensuring that all people in NSW, regardless of where they live, have access to cancer treatment and care. By providing accommodation, financial assistance and practical support to people from rural and regional NSW, we ensure that country people are given the same opportunities and treatment choices as those who live in city centres.

Due to travel and accommodation expenses, it can easily cost a country family affected by cancer up to five times more than a city family just to access treatment. The reality is that many country mums and dads simply can’t afford treatment, let alone the weeks spent away from their family and work.
