Media Release Bowel Cancer NZ

Financial Assistance Service launched

Ka taea e mātou te awhina i ngā wā o te hē. – Helping you in times of trouble.

We recognise that bowel cancer costs in more ways than just the physical and emotional. There is also a financial burden to a diagnosis. This is why we’ve launched our new financial assistance support via food and petrol vouchers.

Available for people going through bowel cancer treatment, either chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery – and struggling to make ends meet.

The vouchers are in the form of one-off gift cards from Countdown and/or MTA and are available to help with food and/or petrol. 

Applications are made online, with our nurse contacting each applicant to assess the ways we can help. Terms and conditions apply, more information and application form here.
