EVENT: Bringing Sunshine - Lunch for Leukaemia
|Bringing Sunshine - Lunch for Leukaemia : Fundraising Luncheon for the Leukaemia Foundation of Western Australia
The Leukaemia Foundation of WA is ‘Bringing Sunshine’ to patients and their families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. Having lunch with friends or family is something we usually take for granted, however for people being treated for blood cancers it’s not that simple. This Lunch for Leukaemia will showcase the Foundation’s ‘Vision to Cure, Mission to
Care’ for those already living with the disease, and the 9792 Australians who are diagnosed each year.
The Leukaemia Foundation of Wa’s General Manager Carolyn Turner will introduce you to three remarkable people: Professor Peter Klinken, Christine Burns and Sue Hurt.
Professor Klinken is the director of the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research. His research interests encompass the regulation of red blood cell formation and ability of leukaemia cells to develop different features and functions. He also has a long-standing interest in identifying genes which can cause cancer or leukaemia.
Christine Burns has lost her mother from leukaemia in 2008 at only 56 years of age, two days after she was diagnosed with the disease.
Sue Hurt is an energetic survivor and living proof of the power of medical research. Sue is an active campaigner and fundraiser for the Foundation.
>> Be sure to bring plenty of spare cash for our raffle, the entire proceeds of which will go directly to the Leukaemia Foundation of Weste rn Australia to help them with their ‘Vision to Cure and Mission to Care’.
Price: Members/Guests $59 ($10 from each ticket goes directly to the Leukaemia Foundation of WA)
