Unite for Hope – taking steps towards a brighter future for upper GI cancers.

Founded by leading surgeon, A/Prof Mehrdad Nikfarjam OAM, Pancare Foundation is a national charity committed to inspiring hope, raising awareness, supporting families and funding research for upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.

With some of the lowest survival rates out of all the major cancers, it’s our mission to improve survival and support for Australians diagnosed with pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers.

Supporting patients and their families, from the point of diagnosis through to treatment and beyond

Through PanSupport, Pancare Foundation’s dedicated support, resource, and information service, we offer support to all Australians affected by upper GI cancers. We provide dedicated online info and resources on living with an upper GI cancer; including information on diagnosis, treatment options, health and wellbeing. We have a dedicated Patient and Carer Support Team including an Upper GI Cancer Specialist Nurse, Support Manager and counselling service. We run patient and carer support groups and host educational webinars on living with upper GI cancers suitable for patients, families and health care professionals.

Investing in world-class research to advance understanding of upper GI cancers

We support medical cancer research that aims to accelerate advancement in early detection, new treatments, enhanced patient care and clinical trials that help improve outcomes for Australians impacted by upper gastrointestinal cancers.

Thank you for joining us and taking us one step closer to a brighter future for upper GI cancers.
