Rise Above – Capital Region Cancer Relief

Rise Above - Capital Region Cancer Relief provides financial assistance and support to cancer patients and family residing with them within the ACT, Queanbeyan and surrounds. Many pharmacies will have patients with accounts for medication paid by Rise Above – providing direct financial support to patients in need.

Additionally, tap donation machines (an EFT-style donation method) are located at Capital Chemist pharmacies at Southlands, Wanniassa, Calwell, Chisholm, Isabella Plains, Kambah and Kingston. Our pharmacies also support Hawaiian Shirt Day and other fund-raising events held by Rise Above.

Rise Above’s Convoy for Cancer is their major fundraiser – while we support that event with donations and a presence that event is “owned” by a local radio station.


Rise Above CEO - Melissa Gardiner, Capital Chemist Community Program Manager - Melita Flynn and Capital Chemist Senior Partner - Roger Tall
