Julie-Anne’s sister Kerryn sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 44. She was determined to make sure other families and people 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 through an online tribute page set up to honour Kerryn’s memory.
Kerryn’s husband Matthew, sons Jake and Colby, parents Ian and Glenda, Julie-Anne and their friends have now raised over $11,000 that will make a difference for people facing this terrible disease.
