Melanie Drapaniotis’ Memory

Move It

We're Moving It


Did you know that every week, 63 Australians die from pancreatic cancer?

Unfortunately my beautiful mum was taken in 2018. People who knew her know how strong, vibrant and resilient she was. They also saw the shell she became while fighting.

Pancreatic cancer is now the 3rd biggest cancer killer of Australians, and because early-stage pancreatic cancer rarely causes symptoms, the survival rates are devastating.

If you are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer tomorrow, there is only a 10% chance you'll be alive in 5 years.

But research can change this. 

So this September, I’ll be taking part in the Move It challenge for Remember September and walking 63km to honour the 63 Australians who die every week from pancreatic cancer.

I'll be up early pounding the pavement in this cold weather, but it's something I can do to make a difference to the lives of people destroyed by pancreatic cancer.

The money I raise will fund research into the early detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Well done, very proud of you! Cancer took my beautiful dad in 2014. Tongue cancer has a 10% survival rate in the first 5 years also. It’s not fair 💔
