Help the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation fight colon cancer during our 4th Annual Light the Trees Christmas campaign.
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.
Please donate today and learn more about this vital campaign here.
