This globally recognised initiative is our community's time to raise awareness for Pancreatic Cancer, to advocate for increased funding, celebrate survivors, and remember the loved ones we have lost.
Because most people have few if any, detectable symptoms in the early stages, this aggressive cancer is typically diagnosed at later, more advanced stages.
Our Unite for Hope fundraisers have raised nearly $70,000 so far! These vital funds help Pancare provide patient support services and fund research into early detection and new treatments. Our passionate community of supporters in Echuca, Mansfield and Sydney braved chilly mornings, muddy fields and howling winds to unite in hope and bring greater awareness, attention and change for upper GI cancers.
The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), delivered welcomed news for Australians living with biliary cancer this week with IMFINZI® (durvalumab) being made available for patients diagnosed with advanced or metastatic biliary tract cancer (BTC) from 1 December 2023.
Patients will now have reimbursed access to IMFINZI® (durvalumab) – the first new treatment in over ten years for this incurable disease. This will mean the cost of treatment is significantly reduced - helping patients have equitable access to treatments.
We spoke to Senior Oncology Dietitian, Lauren Atkins, and pancreatic cancer patient, Aida, for their thoughts on how to navigate religious fasting periods if you or a loved one is impacted by cancer. If you’re currently undergoing cancer treatment, it’s important to talk to your treatment team or an Accredited Practicing Dietitian first.
