Story

In August 2016 my husband Brian died from Cholangiocarcinoma, an aggressive and difficult to treat cancer of the bile duct. He was 51 years of age. Brian was a determined problem solver in his work and his personal life. In his memory, I am taking part in the Larapinta Gutsy Challenge – where I will be walking 85km over five days to raise money for cancer research in the hope that one day better treatments will be available for people like Brian.

Gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer is the most common cancer in our country and 33 Australians die because of it each day. GI cancer affects the oesophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and bowel. The 5-year survival rate for all GI Cancers is currently only 49% ... and when you look at specific areas it is far less – for example it is only 7.7% for pancreatic cancer. It is very likely that you know and love someone who has suffered because of these cancers.

I know that each day someone different puts their hand out for your hard-earned money. But, if we all do something little then together we can make a big difference.

Your donation will support the GI Cancer Institute’s Innovation Fund – enabling new research to be undertaken here in Australia.

GI Cancer Institute (Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trials Group)

The GI Cancer Institute is part of the Australasian Gastro-Intestinal Trial’s Group (AGITG), Australia’s largest independent non-profit organisation that conducts clinical trials into GI cancers. Our trials aim to save, extend and provide a better quality of life for people with GI cancers. [list] [*]GI cancers are the biggest killer of all cancers. Over 24,000  Australians are diagnosed with GI cancers each year, and every day 33 Australians die of GI cancers-that's one every 45 minutes [*]GI cancers are cancers that affect the digestive system. This includes cancers of the stomach, oesophagus, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, stomach and bowel. [/list] Together, we can help improve the chances of those with GI cancers. Thank you for your support. For more information, please visit [url=http://www.gicancer.org.au]www.gicancer.org.au[/url]
