Keith Gowdie: gift inspired by his teenage daughter’s battle
Memories of nearly losing his teenage daughter made Keith Gowdie’s decision to leave a gift in his will to the Leukaemia Foundation an easy one.
It was more than 40 yeas ago that Keith almost lost his teenage daughter to leukaemia. Unlike many children diagnosed with leukaemia in the 1970s, Keith’s daughter Cath survived.
Keith said supporting the Leukaemia Foundation through a gift in his Will was his way of investing in further medical research and supporting other families affected by blood cancers.
“I’d really like to encourage others to support this wonderful organisation by considering a gift in their Will. Any gift, large or small, will ensure that the Leukaemia Foundation can continue its vital work.”
