The 2017 Christmas TraveLeague luncheon supports Pancare Foundation.
Pancare Foundation is Australia’s only charity fighting pancreatic, liver, biliary, oesophageal and stomach cancers. The outcomes for patients diagnosed with these cancers has improved very little over the past forty years and represents a leading cause of cancer in society today; nevertheless, research remains severely under-funded.
Our aim is to increase survival rates and provide support to people affected from diagnosis through to recovery and bereavement.
Together we can be part of the fight against pancreatic cancer. Only together we can make a long-lasting difference.
On average, more than 130 Australians die every week from pancreatic and upper gastrointestinal cancers, most within three to six months of diagnosis.
These cancers are considered to be the ‘silent killers’… they are difficult to detect in their early stages and are very aggressive.
Our researchers need funding to help them find breakthroughs in their understanding of these cancers, to help them find tests for early detection, to help them find ways to prevent these cancers and find new therapies to save lives.
Our desire is to ‘Care’ for people affected by ‘all’ of these upper gastrointestinal cancers across Australia.
We thank TraveLeague for choosing Pancare to benefit from your Christmas Lunch — raising vital funds to support people with pancreatic cancer.
