The Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre was built so that many Northlanders would be able to have treatment in Whangarei, in a state of the art facility, saving the long trip to Auckland and back.
Northland Community Foundation was the force behind the original fundraising programme to build the Cancer Treatment Centre. “Project Promise” galvanised a region to raise $3m in 3 years to build this vital Centre for people in Northland dealing with Cancer.
Project Promise touched the hearts of thousands of Northlanders who gave willingly and generously to support this new building and many people will benefit every year as a result. The large, light, airy facility with superb equipment and furniture has already made a difference to those people on their journey with Cancer.
A history of the project is located here on the Northland District Health Board website: http://redevelopment.northlanddhb.org.nz/projects/cancer-centre/project-history/
