John and Bloom de Largie Dálton – In Celebration Donation

There are many decisions to be made when planning a wedding; Garvan is extremely grateful that, for their special day, John and Bloom de Largie Dálton decided to request their guests make a donation to our cancer research in lieu of gifts.

John and Bloom de Largie Dálton – In Celebration Donation

Bloom, recently diagnosed with cancer, wanted to celebrate her marriage to John by contributing to medical research. John, sharing her sentiments, immediately thought of the Garvan. “The Garvan was the first name to spring into my mind; I had heard so much about their work. We both felt this was the right thing to do, especially since we have everything we need,” said John.

“We were very impressed when we received the personalised In Celebration envelopes to send to our guests; and we found the process very easy with the help of Mona Saade in the Garvan Research Foundation. Our guests were also impressed and enjoyed giving to such a worthwhile cause. Bloom and I were very pleased to see how much was contributed,” he added.

Thanks to the generosity of John, Bloom and their guests, Garvan received over $3,400 towards cancer research.
