The Avner Nahmani Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is the only Foundation in Australia exclusively focused on Pancreatic Cancer. The above statistics are why they exist and why the Foundation is driven to achieving double the number of Pancreatic Cancer survivors by 2020.


City Road Master Plan

The first phase of community engagement took place from mid-February to mid-March 2014 with many people sharing their current experiences of City Road, both in person at the Boyd Community Hub and via the interactive map below. This valuable feedback will help inform the development of the draft master plan.

The second phase of community engagement will take place later in the year when the draft City Road Master Plan will be released for formal community engagement.
