Dot Crawford: lost 10-year-old son to leukaemia

The loss of her beloved son sparked Dot Crawford’s lifelong commitment to the Leukaemia Foundation and her inclusion of a gift in her Will to help other families affected by blood cancer.

“We lost our son on his 10th birthday in 1965. He was diagnosed with leukaemia six weeks before he passed away,” said Dot.

“In those days there was no treatment or support available; we were left in an emotional and financial hole.

“I have chosen to include a gift in my Will to ensure someone else’s son, daughter, mother or father is provided vital support when they need it most.”
