Margaret watched breast cancer impact three generations—her great grandmother, her grandmother and her mum. Then, she stood by her best friend’s side when she too was diagnosed. After seeing and receiving assistance from Cancer Council SA, Margaret has kindly left a gift to Cancer Council SA in her Will.
“Janice was like my sister. The first time I was alone after she told me the news, I cried for what felt like hours. We went through it together. I sat with her through every chemo session, and I shaved my head so she didn’t have to do it alone. But there were some questions I couldn’t answer, so I put her in touch with Cancer Council SA. I even called 13 11 20 myself. It blew my mind to see how supportive they were, and it cemented my appreciation of the role Cancer Council plays for so many people.
Hopefully they’ll have to wait a little while, but my little contribution (whenever it happens) will be a gift to help Cancer Council SA continue their important work.
It’s a comfort to know that whether it’s for me in the future, my loved ones or perfect strangers— they’re doing it for all South Australians. It gives you a warm feeling in your heart.”
