Dedicated cancer support for you
A cancer diagnosis can come as a terrible shock, but we’re here to help you every step of the way.
PanSupport is Pancare Foundation’s dedicated support, resource and information service available for all Australians affected by upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers, such as pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers.
Our friendly and caring team can help you through your diagnosis, understand your treatment options, access support groups and provide you with information and resources to support you on your cancer journey.

The survival rates for pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers are poor, with survival beyond 5 years sitting collectively at less than 20%. Worryingly, despite this, upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers receive less funding than cancers with five-year survival rates of over 90%.
With the right level of investment, substantial progress can be made to improve support for, and survival rates of, people living with these forgotten cancers. Pancare is well placed to help deliver this progress. In a short period of time, we have substantially increased the number of patients we support and made a real difference in the lives of people impacted by these cancers, their families and carers.
