Garden oasis gift to help blood cancer patients
Leukaemia Foundation Donor Liaison Officer, Emma Quigley with her daughter Pearl, and Mike Burns from Elders Realestate Palmwoods were on hand to congratulate new owners Karl and Jeanie and their children who purchased the property at Mooloolah Valley.
Sunshine Coast local Christine Taylor had a wonderful vision for her garden oasis property but sadly a blood cancer diagnosis changed her plans dramatically.
Despite her diagnosis of a Myelodysplastic syndrome, Christine was determined to make a difference to others who were facing the same difficulties.
She cemented her commitment by gifting in her Will her property in Mooloolah Valley to the Leukaemia Foundation with the understanding the proceeds from the sale
would help those fighting blood cancers when they need it the most.
Sadly, Christine passed away earlier this year after a brave fight.
Her property was recently auctioned, with the new owners Karl and Jeanie and their children looking to make it their home in the years to come.
The $252,500 proceeds of the sale will help the Leukaemia Foundation continue to provide a range of essential patient support services and education programs, and to maintain our investment in research seeking better treatments and cures as well as access to clinical trials.
Not only will Christine’s garden oasis provide a lasting impact on people with blood cancer, but also give new joy and happiness to a young family.
