Julie-Anne’s sister Kerryn passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 44. She was determined to make sure other families wouldn’t have to suffer in the same way, and decided to raise money for medical research. Her goal was to raise $10,000 for Garvan with an online tribute page in Kerryn’s memory.

Kerryn’s family and friends have now raised over $11,000 — which will make a difference for people facing this terrible disease. (Right: Kerryn with her husband Matthew)
