Online Fundraising

40 years with almost no progress is a long time to wait...

Pancreatic Cancer survival rates have not significantly changed in this time

It’s simply unacceptable that, in 2018, someone diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer should have less than 10% chance of survival.


However, we can all make a difference by supporting the Wish You Were Here team in its efforts to raise funding and awareness.

The Challenge

In September 2019, the Wish You Were Here team will undertake another physical challenge:


The Trek to Everest Base Camp

Then, on World Pancreatic Cancer Day 2019, we will hold Australia's largest fundraising event for Pancreatice Cancer:


The Wish You Were Here Gala Dinner

Our aim is to raise the profile of Pancreatic Cancer even higher, to emphasise its prevalence and severity, and to urge communities to unite and tackle this terrible disease together.

Our Goal

Our goal is to raise $500,000 for the Pancreatic Cancer research.


For us to be able to achieve this, we will be seeking the support of both Corporate Australia and general public.

Our physical challenge is the easy part of our project; the real challenge is converting our audience numbers into donations - and with only an 8% chance of surviving more than 5 years following Pancreatic Cancer diagnosis, time is not on our side.

Our Beneficiary

The money we raise will go directly to the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, who channel our funds to front line medical research.

As the only charity in Australia exclusively dedicated to Pancreatic Cancer, since 2015 the Avner Foundation has channeled $6.3million in grants to those conducting Pancreatic Cancer research at the best universities and research institutions in the country.

How to Participate

In order to achieve our goal, we need your support!

We have three fantastic options for you to get involved with:

Join the trekking team! We have a very limited number of spaces left on the team, so if you would like to be part of this once in a lifetime experience, we’d love to hear from you.

Following the overwhelming success of our Kokoda Trail Gala Dinner, we will be holding another such event at Luna Park, Sydney on 21 November 2019 - World Pancreatic Cancer day.
