Bev, whose daughter is a cancer survivor, wanted to ensure that all members of the Northern Community had access to cancer treatments locally. At the time this service was not yet established at Northern Hospital Epping.
Bev rallied her local networks, community members, local Councillors and politicians along with the Northern Health medical workforce to lobby State and Federal Governments to rise to the cause.
Through her tireless efforts and incredible tenacity Bev was responsible for securing the funding from Government to establish cancer services at Northern Hospital Epping.
Bev’s support and fundraising continues to leave an enduring legacy at Northern Health and within her community and is still heavily involved in fundraising for Cancer Services. She also sits on our Community Event’s Committee as a valued member.
Her Northern Health Foundation Race Day and Oak’s Day events are popular on our annual events calendar.
She is a passionate advocate for Northern Health and the Northern community.
