Gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer is a broad term used to encompass cancers of the digestive system: the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and bowel. It is collectively the most common form of cancer in New Zealand. Each year nearly 5,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with a GI cancer; half of these people will die within five years of diagnosis. Yet despite being the most prevalent form of cancer, it is under-represented in funding and awareness.
