Mother’s Day is fast approaching, which means many of us are working overtime to think of creative but meaningful gift ideas.
Many ACRF supporters choose to give donations in lieu of gifts on special days such as Mother’s Day through the ACRF’s ‘In Celebration’ giving program, and we are truly grateful for their support.
Donations in lieu of gifts help to make an incredible difference to our work in cancer research. Every donation dollar we receive (100%) funds world-class research into all types of cancer.
Wouldn’t a world without cancer be the greatest gift of all this Mother’s Day?
Mother’s Day can be a very difficult time for those who have lost their Mothers through cancer, or for Mothers who have experienced their own heartache.
We are very grateful to have supporters who choose to mark special occasions such as Mother’s Day by sending regular charity donations in memory of their Mother.
Dr Alison Green from Brisbane generously shared her Mothers’ story with us through our survey, explaining why she chose to make a monthly donation to ACRF.
“My mother Jean died of a Glioblastoma in June 2011, aged 73. She had a history of breast cancer and also a history of melanoma. I am aware through my work as a doctor that research in one area can have benefits for other cancers, as well as hope for improvement in survival with quality of life for patients. It is for that reason and also in memory of my Mother that I am a regular donor.”
