How We Help
The Cancer Support Group financially assists cancer patients in the ACT, Queanbeyan and surrounding areas. We are uniquely able to provide assistance to patients with all types of cancer, across all ages. As of 2016 our youngest patient is just 10 months old.
With the help of government assistance we are fortunate to have funding for three full time office staff. The balance of administrative costs comes from the rent of the four-bedroom unit above the office that was kindly donated by the Queanbeyan Leagues Club.This allows us to give 100% of money raised to our patients.
Unfortunately we do need to limit the amount of support we provide. Presently we have to limit this at $2,500 per patient which includes all medication, chemotherapy, food supplements and food & petrol vouchers.
While we are very proud of the assistance we are able to provide, we would be very happy to be able to give more. We know that there are many more cancer patients and families requiring assistance and a wider range of assistance.
To allow us to continue providing help to cancer patients and the families residing with them, we constantly need funds. Please help! All donations are greatly appreciated.
We couldn't do all that we do without our volunteers who dedicate their time to give back to the community. We are always looking for more volunteers to assist us in our fundraising events and administration work. Please help us and become a volunteer today!
Thank you for considering joining our family.
