Shocked by diagnosis but bowel cancer awareness saved David's life

"Finding bowel cancer early can save lives." - David Vinsen.

David was shocked to find he had bowel cancer after doing a test through the Waitemata Bowel Screening Programme. But he considers himself lucky as his cancer was found early - and he didn't need chemotherapy.

Can you help with a donation?

The Bowel Screening Programme needs a life saving educational prop - an inflatable 'The Big, Big, Blow-up Bowel'.

To be used regularly at community events, the walk through bowel shows the changes from a healthy bowel, through the stages of pre-cancer to advanced bowel cancer which is very important to help breakdown misconceptions & ensure people get tested. Bowel cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death, killing more than 1200 people each year.

By donating towards the $10,000 inflatable 'The Big, Big, Blow-up Bowel' you will ultimately be helping to save lives.
