A gift for the future of cancer research

Some of the ACRF’s largest research grants have been made possible by bequests from people who, during their lives, decide to contribute to a future without cancer.

ACRF’s Planned Giving Coordinator, Jennifer Coffey, visited a very special couple who have recently decided to leave a bequest to the Foundation in their will.

Claudia and Peter Fisk live in picturesque Leura in the Blue Mountains and their delightful garden has recently been featured as a highlighted attraction at the Leura Gardens Festival. Claudia told Jennifer she worked in the travel industry and in art galleries until the couple moved to their beautiful Blue Mountains retreat.

Peter, a retired TV director, worked on the popular TV drama “All Saints’’ until last year. “Peter is a cancer patient who has been in treatment for a number of years” explained Jennifer. “At the moment the two travel to Sydney’s Concord Hospital three times a week for Peter’s chemotherapy procedures”, she added.

The Board of Trustees of the Foundation and the researchers we fund acknowledge with gratitude the thoughtful generosity of Claudia and Peter Fisk, and those who have remembered the Australian Cancer Research Foundation in their wills.

You are helping us fund breakthrough research with the potential to change the world.
