At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse the importance of our work in transforming treatment and care for cancer patients cannot be underestimated. Knowing this, many people like to support our cause by leaving a gift in their Will. In doing so they are helping to enhance the work of our researchers, medical teams and other specialist staff in making a positive impact on the lives of cancer patients.
The Chris O’Brien Bequest Society recognises and honours those visionary people who have chosen to leave a gift in their Will to Lifehouse and have advised us of their intention to do so. Whether the bequest is large or small, Gail O’Brien, Bequest Society Patron, and herself a bequestor, says she is overwhelmed by the generosity of the Society’s members.
“It is inspirational to know there are people who leave truly heartfelt gifts to Lifehouse with the aim of creating a better future for cancer patients. Chris would have been very touched to know people still strongly support his vision.”
Julian Hofer, a former cancer patient, is leaving a gift in his Will to Lifehouse to say thank you for the help and support he received during that difficult time. “Lifehouse gave me a second chance and, along with making an annual donation, leaving a bequest to help others just seemed like the right thing to do.”
