Over 3,200 Australians are diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer every year. Of those, only 9.8% will live beyond 5 years.

The core mission of the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is to improve the survival rates of Pancreatic Cancer patients. We are achieving results through a strategic focus on raising awareness and investing in ground-breaking medical research to improve treatment.

We know from work with other cancers such as breast, skin and prostate, that medical research is the single most important factor impacting patient survival. Due to extensive funding, these cancers now have 5-year survival rates above 90%. It’s time to make the same improvements for Pancreatic Cancer.

The Avner Foundation is the only charity in Australia exclusively dedicated to Pancreatic Cancer. We invite you to join us on the journey to improve survival rates and the quality of life for the thousands of Australians affected by this disease every year.
