Susie Lee: “an umbrella of support went up for me”

Susie and Bob stayed in Leukaemia Foundation accommodation while Bob was receiving treatment for leukaemia.

Sadly Bob passed away in 2009, but after he did an “Umbrella of support went up for me,” said Susie.

“The Leukaemia Foundation reached out to me, sending me information and seeing if they could help me on my grief journey.”

When Susie celebrated her 60th birthday, she asked her friends to donate to the Leukaemia Foundation in lieu of gifts.

“This was a great way to raise some money and awareness for an amazing organisation,” Susie said.

Susie now plans to leave a portion of her estate in her Will to the Leukaemia Foundation.
