Philanthropist Tom Shearer extends a helping hand

My life is enriched by the privilege of being able to help.

Tom Shearer grew up in Mannum, South Australia, a country town not far from Adelaide.  Tom enjoyed a happy childhood, raised by parents who held strong values, including a responsibility for helping people in need. The values instilled by Tom’s parents translated to his generous spirit, with Tom becoming a loyal supporter of the Leukaemia Foundation.

“I first learned of the work of the Leukaemia Foundation from my treating oncologist at the time. Dr Andrew Roberts suggested that I might like to assist the Leukaemia Foundation as it assists the welfare and dignity of blood cancer patients and their families.

My first donation to the Leukaemia Foundation was made shortly afterwards. In addition to annual giving, I have made provision in my Will that my estate will help provide good accommodation for cancer outpatients and spouses from the country or interstate, who otherwise might not be able to stay nearby during their treatment.

I feel that in partnership with the Leukaemia Foundation, a secure and kind helping hand has been extended firmly to people living with blood cancer.”
