In memory of Stella Galea

By Joanne Galea

Mum fought and won her battle with two kinds of cancer. The third one snuck up on her silently and didn’t show itself until it was too late. Mum’s greatest wish was for researchers to find a cure for cancer - especially the rare and aggressive ones that are hard to treat. 

Instead of flowers for mum’s funeral, we would love you make a donation to the Garvan Institute to help them make mum’s dream a reality.
