Research grant at WAIMR named in memory of the Late Kevin McCusker

The ACRF Board and staff would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to the family of the Late Mr Kevin McCusker, and thank them for supporting his most generous bequest to cancer research.

To honour Mr McCusker’s significant donation to ACRF, a research grant awarded in 2010 has been named in his memory.

Mr McCusker’s donation in his Will will leave a lasting legacy through the provision of a world-class imaging hub for cancer diagnosis and management at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR). The Director of WAIMR, Professor Peter Klinken, is thrilled to support the naming of this $2.4 grant in memory of Mr McCusker.

Mr McCusker’s family has described him as a very quiet and unassuming man of strong principles and deep feelings. They are pleased to be able to facilitate this legacy.

“This bequest has been made because people he loved had died from cancer and other underlying causes,” they said.

“Much of his own money was acquired through inheritance and we believe he felt it was the best way he could recognise those who had provided so well for him.”
