Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a very special way of honouring someone and many families find comfort in choosing Gut Cancer Foundation as the beneficiary of donations in lieu of flowers.  Such a gift becomes a lasting tribute to loved ones who are no longer with us, while helping so many others in return.


You can also create a personalised tribute page that you can share with your friends and family so they can make donations and leave a personal message online.  It takes only minutes to build but is a very special way to commemorate your loved one with family, friends and colleagues.

Gut Cancer Foundation

Gut Cancer Foundation is dedicated to improving the outcomes for patients with a gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer. We aim to increase awareness of GI cancers and raise funds to support clinical research in New Zealand, focusing particularly on clinical trials.

GI cancer is the term used for the group of cancers that affect the digestive system, i.e. the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder and bile ducts, pancreas and bowel. It is collectively the most common form of cancer, with over 5,100 new cases diagnosed each year in New Zealand (Ministry of Heath, 2016).

14 people are told each day they have a GI or gut cancer.
8 people die each day, that is more than breast and prostate cancer combined.

To improve the survival rates of GI cancer, we must provide funding for clinical research. Unfortunately, there is a critical lack of financial support for GI cancer clinical trials in New Zealand. GCF seeks to fill this funding gap to ensure that patients in New Zealand have access to the best possible treatments.

With your help, we can kick cancer in the guts!
