Whangaparāoa dad thought he had a parasite, but it was cancer

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Rodney Times

Hi neighbours, When Whangaparāoa man Darrell Poole first noticed gurgling sounds and cramping coming from his intestine, he thought he had a parasite.
But, just days before Christmas 2019, a colonoscopy revealed a much more sinister reason for the symptoms – aggressive colon cancer.
The dad of two has been told he has no further treatment options in NZ and is fundraising to get to the US to participate in a drug trial that will cost between $200,000 and $1 million. Read more about his story by clinking the below link.
