Publish Date: 3/9/2017

Some readers will identify with Steve Campbell this Father’s Day – feeling the absence of dad even more than other days.

Steve recently ran a half marathon and raised more than $3,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation as a tribute to his late father, Richard, who lost his four-month battle with leukaemia in February.

Steve had a special memorial for Richard at the finish line. Steve says his family will always be grateful for the Leukaemia Foundation’s support, which included transport to medical appointments and counselling for the entire family.

“Although Dad is no longer with us, we will always remember the twinkle in his eyes and his dry sense of humour, which remained until the end, as well as his enormous love of his wife, my mum Theresa, and his children and grandchildren,” said Steve.
