WHO ELSE IS LEAVING A LEGACY TO OUTSMART CANCER

We thank our generous bequestors

On behalf of Australia’s best cancer research scientists, we offer our gratitude to the families of the following individuals. In supporting their wishes to be leaving a legacy to charity, each of these families are providing a lifesaving gift to help us to prevent, diagnose, treat, and ultimately, outsmart cancer.

Leaving a bequest to ACRF provides a sense of hope and support to those people who need it most. 

We would like to give a special mention below to some of our bequestors and show our appreciation for their generosity in helping to create a world without cancer.

  • ANDREA SCHULTZ

    “This photo with my Richi was taken at Christmas 2008, our first and only Christmas when we didn’t know anything about the deadly cancer. I wonder will I ever get that smile back on my face….”

    Andrea has made a commitment to cancer research both as a loyal supporter, donor and by including the ACRF in her Will. Her fight against cancer is in tribute to her Beloved Richi, who tragically passed away from the disease.

  • HOLLY SMITH

    Holly Smith is a cancer survivor. It has been more than 20 years since she was diagnosed but she has not forgotten – “Having cancer was one of the most powerful lessons of my life and I am truly grateful for the experience.”

    Holly has a truly amazing outlook on life, having personally battled with our society’s biggest killer. She is committed to fighting cancer by leaving a legacy to research in her Will which will support the future of researchers’ work in Australia.

  • THE LATE MR KEVIN MCCUSKER

    ACRF would like to extend heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Mr Kevin McCusker, and thank them for supporting his decision of leaving a legacy to cancer research. To honour this significant donation, a research grant awarded to the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) has been named in Mr McCusker’s honour.

    Mr McCusker’s family described him as a very quiet and unassuming man of strong principles and deep feelings. “This bequest has been made because people he loved had died from cancer and other underlying causes,” they said.

  • THE LATE MRS FLORENCE JANE ANDERSON

    Florence Jane (‘Billie’) Anderson lived in Randwick in a beautiful sandstone terrace that had been owned by her grandmother and then later her mother. She was a young girl during the war years and by her own accounts (as told to friends Peter Grant and neighbours Jann and Maurizio Zappacosta) was a high-spirited character whose early photos bore an uncanny resemblance to Katherine Hepburn!!

    Billie married for a second time late in her life; her first marriage had been a short and unhappy one. She adored her second husband but he died from a brain tumour and Billie remained alone. It was her husband’s illness that prompted her to support cancer research and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. When Billie moved to Charingfield Nursing Home, she made a powerful decision to bequeath her estate, leaving a legacy to cancer research.

    An astute woman, Billie enjoyed life, laughter and fun. When she passed away at age 87, the main theme of the eulogy was her fierce determination to be independent and live life to the full.
