Liz McKeough's Memorial Fund


raised so far


of $30,000 goal

On the 23rd of May 2019, our Mum Liz lost her battle with ovarian cancer. Mum survived 20 years from her first diagnosis, and almost 13 years from when we found out about the cancers return and spread to other organs in her body.

She underwent years of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery and fought with unbelievable strength and hope against a disease that can often feel life-shattering and hopeless. In this time she was also raising us three young daughters and helping our Dad on the farm whilst having treatment. Even though these years were difficult for our family, we realise we were still so fortunate to have been able to spend all that time with mum unlike many families of other women diagnosed.

From a family who have experienced first-hand how cruel this disease can be, we really want to make a difference so other families don’t have to go through this same heartache of losing a loved one. We understand the importance of finding an early detection test and the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) is pivotal in raising vital funds for the research to create this test.

As a family we have created this fund in memory of Mum that will contribute all money raised to the cause. It would mean the absolute world to our family if you could help us in our fundraising efforts and any small donation will really make a difference.

This early-detection test may have been too late for Mum but it is going to help save so many lives for the future ♥.
