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 Foundation was the force behind the original fundraising programme to build the Cancer 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/

Another option for funding is the ‘Buy a Brick’ fundraising campaign.
The “Brick Wall” inside the Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre was part of the “Project Promise” fundraising programme. More than 400 bricks were sold during the campaign. Now that the Centre is built, bricks are still available for purchase for $1,000 to support the ongoing work of the Centre.
You will see that every brick has a message on it. You can choose your own message (up to 40 characters) so that “your” brick is special and personalised.
The gift of a brick is greatly valued by the team at the Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre as it is a visual reminder of the people who have supported their work, as well as a reminder of the funds that have been raised.
You can ‘Buy a Brick’ through our website: https://northlandfoundation.org.nz/donate/ via internet banking or credit card. Fill out the donation form, select Health Plus Fund, state that the donation is for the Jim Carney Cancer Treatment Centre, ‘Buy a Brick’ and write the message that you would like on the ‘Brick’.
