Griffith Can Assist
Monday - Friday 10.00am-3.00pm
Providing direct financial assistance to local cancer patients who are financially traumatised due to their illness.
Can Assist is a grass roots, community based charity dedicated solely to supporting country NSW people and their families affected by cancer. 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.
Since 1955 Can Assist's network of branches have grown to 51 throughout NSW. These branches raise vitals funds to provide direct support to their local communities affected by cancer.
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.
