PHOTO: EMILY FORD/FAIRFAX NZ Don’t let cancerownyou EMILY FORD Haley Coe wants people to know the importance of regular checkups. Her father, Gary McCrystal was 68 when he died of bowel cancer in 2012. The husband, father, barber and boxing enthusiast had battled the disease for three years, which had reached stage three when doctors caught it. Coe, from Northcote, says her dad never gave up and didn’t let cancer own his life. ‘‘His main message was to keep living your life and doing all the things you want to do. Don’t let it get you down,’’ Coe says. She’s thankful for the support their family had from places like the Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Institute (GICI). ‘‘With cancer you want for your loved one going through it to have access to the very best treatment.’’ Gastrointestinal cancers are the largest grouping of cancers in New Zealand, according to GICI. Its campaign, Not to be Ignored, runs until the end of May and is about increasing awareness and funding for clinical research. McCrystal received support from doctors at GICI, and happily shared his story as part of its video campaigns. Coe and her husband, Grant, got married two weeks after he died. They asked their guests to donate money to the organisation instead of giving gifts. ‘‘It was pretty horrible to watch someone go through that,’’ she says. ‘‘It was hard, particularly in the end watching him get really sick. He is the strongest person I know. He refused to let it get him down.’’ However, his fighting spirit and personality isn’t forgotten. Coe made a photo book of memories so her 14-month-old daughter, Rosie, would know her granddad. ‘‘We talk about him all the time,’’ she says. ‘‘We do lots of things to keep him with us.’’ The Coes own and run Moleman, a mole screening and skin cancer clinic, and it’s driven home the importance of early diagnosis. ‘‘Anything that can encourage people to take action rather than them have that same journey that we went through.’’ ❚ Text GICI to 2449 to donate $3 or go to gicinz.org.nz to donate to the Not to be Ignored campaign. $920,000 4Arahia St, Northcote Three bedrooms, one bathroom with multiple open plan living areas, sunny alfresco entertaining deck.
