This month has seen the mourning of two highly regarded influential Australians, and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) would like to thank well-wishers for their generous donations in their memory.
The late Lady (Faye) Rowland, wife to the former Governor of NSW, Air Marshal Sir James Anthony Rowland, lost her fight with cancer on December 16, 2011. The family have requested that donations be made to the ACRF in lieu of flowers or gifts, a gesture for which ACRF is truly grateful. We send our thanks and best wishes to the family and friends of such a wonderful woman.
The ACRF is also humbled to receive donations in memory of the late V8 Supercar driver, Jason Richards. It was only a year ago that Jason was diagnosed with a particularly aggressive form of cancer. Despite the prognosis, Jason continued to be a force on the track, and his energy and determination has touched many Australians.
Christmas is a time that can be difficult for many thousands of Australians who have lost a loved one to this terrible disease in recent years. If you wish to make a memorial donation to the ACRF, please click here.
