Bowel Cancer New Zealand
Bowel Cancer New Zealand is a nationwide, patient-focused charity dedicated to beating bowel cancer through life-saving awareness, education, advocacy, research and support. Their goal is to reduce the impact of bowel cancer on New Zealanders and communities, and ultimately, to ensure that no more lives are lost to this silent killer.
Bowel cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death in New Zealand. It kills as many New Zealanders as breast and prostate cancer combined, and it can affect anyone at any age. But it is treatable – and beatable – if it’s detected early enough.
With your donation, Bowel Cancer NZ will be able to support more kiwis in their brave fight against bowel cancer. Your donation translates to better awareness of bowel cancer symptoms and early treatment, better health and lifestyle choices by those at risk, and services like the online Facebook support page and free 0800 nurse helpline for bowel cancer patients.
The difference your gift could make:
$25 could help pay for vital awareness resources that provide lifesaving information;
$50 could help fund critical education programmes for the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer;
$75 could support Bowel Cancer NZ’s closed Facebook support group page for those experiencing bowel cancer;
$100 could help fund bowel cancer research to improve patient outcomes.
