Help the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation fight colon cancer at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
There are over 3,500 patients waiting up to 12 months for a colonoscopy or other endoscopic procedure at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Colonoscopies are used to diagnose serious illnesses including colon cancer. The only way to reduce wait times for this vital procedure which can save lives is by building a new surgical suite and we can only accomplish this with the community’s support. Watch the video featuring Dr. Daniel Jenkin, General Surgeon, to learn why the new surgical suite is so urgently needed for our community.
We are almost at our goal – help raise the remaining funds needed! Please donate today and learn more about this vital campaign here.
