It was Jackie’s love for people that led her to become a long-time supporter of BCFNZ, and ultimately, make a bequest to us. Here Kim talks about why leaving this very special gift in her Will was one of the most powerful decisions Jackie ever made.

“There were two important people in Mum’s life who had been through breast cancer. Her sister-in-law, who was diagnosed around 30 years ago, had to travel to Australia for treatment because she couldn’t get it here in NZ. Her cousin was also diagnosed around 20 years ago.

“It was these two women who made her so passionate about supporting BCFNZ. She knew that advances in research requires a great deal funding and she worked hard to contribute to this.

Every year she took part in the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal and no one could get past Mum without giving a donation. “I know the impact of Mum’s bequest will truly make a difference.

My hope is that her kindness will live on through the work BCFNZ is doing to save lives for generations to come.”

A gift in your Will can help change the future of breast cancer, so that one day we’ll see zero deaths from this devastating disease. Learn more about joining the Pink Ribbon Bequest
