Every day in Australia, 8 babies are born with a heart defect. Every week, 4 lives are lost. Working with health professionals, HeartKids provides lifelong support to those with congenital (childhood) heart disease (CHD) and their families. They also fund life-saving research, advocate for the needs of children with CHD and their families and provide information and education.
HeartKids receives no government funding and relies heavily on the donations of the public as well as our wonderful sponsors. We would like to acknowledge our generous sponsors by thanking them for their ongoing support.
Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation
Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is named after Avner Nahmani who was diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer in 2007 and passed away 13 months later in October 2008. Whilst facing up to the fact that survival is so low and that this disease is under-funded, under-researched and under the radar, Avner and his wife Caroline, had a dream to see future patients offered hope of better outcomes. It is the only charity in Australia focused exclusively on the disease and through community and corporate support has raised $6.5m for research. The sole purpose of the Foundation is to make survival possible and it has a vision to double the survival rate by 2020. For more information, please visit www.avnersfoundation.org.au.
