CIBC Helping to Fight Colon Cancer

By October 8, 2019Thank You!

Thank you to CIBC for their generous $10,000 donation! The funds will be used towards the new surgical suite for the Endoscopy Department at NRGH!

Colonoscopies make up 80% of the procedures and can be life saving. They are used to diagnose and, in some cases, can prevent serious illnesses such as colon cancer. Once the new surgical suite is complete, capacity will increase up to 35%. Wait times will be greatly reduced for patients in central Vancouver Island.
