In loving memory of Ian Coogan

Ian’s legacy

Tuesday 3rd Aug

At 4am on Thursday the 5th of August 2021, Ian passed away peacefully from pancreatic cancer at the age of 66. He was determined to make sure other families wouldn’t have to suffer in the same way, and decided to raise money for medical research. His goal was to raise $10,000 for Garvan with an online tribute page in Ian’s memory.

We hope that this will make a difference for people facing this terrible  disease. Thank you for your support, Therese, Erin, Dom, Teddy and all of our family.
