Today, Sunday the 29th of November, we put our foot down to to raise funds for The Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, the only Foundation in Australia dedicated exclusively to Pancreatic Cancer.
We walked in memory of two very special ladies, Fay, our beloved Mum/Mema and Gail, our beautiful friend and inspiration for the Grateful Hearts Gift Box Range.
The Avner’s Pancreatic Cancer Foundation’s aim is to break through 40 years of no progress by doubling the number of people who survive Pancreatic Cancer by 2020! Currently the survival rate sits at 5.2%, the lowest survival rate of all cancers and heart breakingly enough over 2000 people will be diagnosed in Australia each year with the median survival rate between 3 and 6 months. The statistics on Pancreatic Cancer are, without a doubt, confronting and upsetting, and we have tears in our eyes every time we see these facts, but it is also what drives us to support this foundation in doubling the survival rate!
