Our Current Campaign is the:
The KBRH Health Foundation is fundraising for a $400,000 Endoscopy Campaign which will purchase equipment to perform Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy procedures, as well as support the Colorectal Cancer Screening Program at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH). Colon cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer, affecting 1 in 6 British Columbians. In its early stages, there is often no evident symptom, which is why screening is so important. With early detection and treatment, survival rates are approximately 90%.
Last year, 2,500 Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy procedures were performed at KBRH. Endoscopies are non-surgical procedures used to investigate and treat conditions of the digestive tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach and colon. Procedures are performed as an Ambulatory Care Day Procedure and patients are admitted and discharged on the same day. The Colorectal Cancer Screening Program operates 5 days a week with 5 surgeons performing Endoscopies.
Through your support, the KBRH Health Foundation will purchase priority equipment to support the Colorectal Cancer Screening Program and other Endoscopy procedures. The intent is to provide the most modern equipment, so that colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal disorders can be diagnosed and treated, and lives can be saved. Thank you for your support of this campaign that will provide benefit to all our citizens who choose to live and work across the beautiful Kootenay Boundary. DONATE ONLINE NOW
