A Lasting Legacy
Funding Research To Treat Cancer
Sadly, Jennie passed away in 2018. In her final months, she decided that she wanted to help other women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. So, she left a gift in her Will to support gynaecological cancer research at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
Jennie’s gift helped fund Dr. Farrell’s research into HIPEC that saved Ivana’s life and will continue to improve the lives of other women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
As an oncologist and surgeon, Dr. Farrell supports and treats women with gynaecological cancer at every stage of their disease, from diagnosis to surgery and beyond.
“I’m honoured by Jennie’s incredibly generous gift towards ovarian cancer research,” says Dr. Farrell. “Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a recognised state centre for clinical trials in gynaecological cancer. Jennie’s gift will allow us to carry out research that will inform and transform the way we treat this aggressive cancer, and give hope to many women.”
