For every barrow wristwatch purchased, we’ll donate $5 to life-extending research that is helping give the gift of time to people living with gastrointestinal cancer. Learn more about the charities below.
GI CANCER INSTITUTE
Cancer is a big, frightening beast. But we’ve chosen to focus our fund-raising efforts on GI cancer in honour of Daniel’s mother, Nina Felice, who lost her battle with GI cancer in 2004.
GI cancer is the name given to the group of cancers affecting the digestive system, including the anus, bowel, gallbladder, liver, oesophagus, pancreas, small intestine and stomach.
Each year, more than 28,000 Australians are diagnosed with GI cancer and 35 Australians die of it each day. It is the most common form of cancer, affecting both men and women.
The Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group (AGITG) and the GI Cancer Institute run clinical trials as well as raise funds for GI cancer to help improve the health and quality of life for patients.
