Can you help build a new breast diagnostic centre, for people like Niki?

Let's not wait until it's too late.

Would you like to be part of a special group of people that help take the pressure off cancer patients like Niki?

Niki is a 45-year-old mother in West Auckland. She's married with three young children. Last year she discovered she had grade 1 invasive breast cancer.

 

When she found a lump in her breast, she didn’t think much of it. Her GP sent her off for a mammogram. One week later Niki had a biopsy, but it wasn’t until another three weeks that she got the results. It was an agonising wait.

 

“The doctor straight away said you have cancer and you are going to need a mastectomy. I was in shock and started to cry straight away. They talked through the options that I had. Reconstruction or not and what that looked like. I finished the appointment and sat in my car and fell apart.”

 

Getting tested for cancer is a very scary experience. Like Niki, waiting for the results is agonising. Your life could change forever.

 

Niki's did.

 

Too many patients are waiting too long for a diagnosis. Many have to travel to different medical clinics spread out far across the region. Not only that, they have to battle traffic. And sometimes that's just too late.

 

I'm sure you know of someone who has suffered from cancer. And you would like to see them have an easier ride.

 

This is why it's so important we make a change!

 

Let's not wait until it's too late.

 

This is urgent. Can you help build a new breast diagnostic centre?

 

This special centre will be a place where patients can have all tests, in one single day, for a quick diagnosis. 

 

But your help is urgently needed.

    • Aim to raise $2 million.

    • But $1.27 million has already been raised.

    • Can you help raise the $730,000 left to go!

    • If we raise this amount, the build can happen by 2020.
