When Jo was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer, everything changed.  

She went from being an active, healthy mother of two to barely being able to stand up and get dressed without help.  

During treatment, she faced endless nausea, hair loss, dry skin, extreme fatigue – the list goes on. But along with her family and friends, nurse Marie from the Cancer Society stayed by her side, providing invaluable support every step of the way.  

When you donate to the Cancer Society, you ensure support for thousands of New Zealanders like Jo. This Daffodil Day, don’t underestimate the impact your gift will make. 

Will you stand by us as we fight for a future with less cancer? 

Whether it is being transported to treatment, free cancer information or wrap-around support, the Cancer Society relies on people like you to keep its services running. For Jo, these services have meant she can focus on what matters – spending time with her family and staying strong for her kids.  

"My daughter said to me you're going to die! I said we know people who have had cancer, and they've survived. We're going to hit this with all the medicines we can, and we're going to fight this." 

"With the Cancer Society, you've got someone fighting in your corner when your voice feels weak and when you're at your worst. When you're feeling alone and having some company for conversation or more practical help." 

Thank you for your incredible support.
