Gut cancers are the most common form of cancer

in New Zealand

GCF seeks to increase survival rates, life expectancy and quality of life for gut cancer patients

through funding clinical research and raising awareness.

14 Kiwis are diagnosed with a gut cancer every day. That’s over 5,000 Kiwis every year, making gut cancers the most common type of cancer in New Zealand.

Gut cancers are cancers of the digestive tract that include oesophageal, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreatic and bowel cancer.

Our mission is to increase survival rates, life expectancy and quality of life for gut cancer patients in New Zealand.
