Every year, in September, we remember our friend and work colleague David Willis. Dave passed away from an aggressive cancer with an unknown primary 16 years ago this month. He was just 44, or as Dave would say…40 plus GST!
We celebrate Dave’s life and all those around the world that have battled with, and continued to be affected by this insidious disease, with a wine sale we affectionately refer to, as Crazy Dave. Each year a portion of the sales proceeds are donated to a specific person, group or institute that has, had or is conducting research on cancer.
Just as it has with so many other aspects of our lives, the COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for not-for-profit cancer organisation fundraising efforts and for this reason we have decided that is where would like to direct our donation this year.
The GI Cancer Institute is one such not-for-profit organisation in need. Gastro-Intestinal (GI) cancer affects the digestive organs: oesophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder and biliary tract, pancreas, large and small bowel, rectum and anus. Around 28,600 Australians are diagnosed with GI cancer each year and 39 Australians die of it each day.
With an overall survival rate of just over 50% – and as low as 9% for pancreatic cancer, all the money that is raised supports clinical trials research that seeks to improve the health and quality of life of patients with GI cancer. The impact of GI cancer on patients doesn’t stop during the COVID-19 pandemic and neither does the need to fundraise, to continue research.
