Vanessa's Fund

$34,390 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 247 people in 14 months
Created April 9, 2018
Sadly, our beautiful Vanessa Juresic has lost her battle with triple negative breast cancer. 

We extend our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. She is incredibly loved and will never be forgotten. 

Given Vanessa's heroic decision to direct these funds to the research of the Garvan Institute, we hope you will continue to support this effort.

Vanessa had asked that we keep this Fund open as long as contributions were still being made.

In honour of her, please share this page to help us raise further donations.

X Team Gay.

Dear friends and family

Our darling Vanessa's kindness has left a lasting impact on each of us, especially these last few months, and we are now fulfilling one of her final wishes.

In her final act of kindness, Vanessa chose for the money, generously donated by you all on the Go-Fund-Me page, to go towards changing the lives of other women and their families. Specifically, she wanted the money raised, almost $35,000, to go to the Garvan Institute and her oncologist, Elgene Lim, whom Vanessa had a deep respect for. Professor Lim is leading research into triple negative breast cancer and its hoped this money will go to towards ensuring no one has to endure the suffering we all have since Vanessa's diagnosis.

To thank you for your generous contribution, the Juresic family and Patrick are hosting a small reception at Hunters Hill Bowling Club on the 2nd of November at 6pm.

More details will be provided shortly, but we hope you can mark the date in your diary and join us for drinks, nibbles and sharing memories of our beautiful girl.

We hope this will be the first of an annual event in Vanessa's honour, to emulate her famous white parties, to celebrate her life and raise money for the Garvan Institute.

Please RSVP by Monday 29th of October at email sophiejuresic1@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 2 November at Hunters Hill Bowling Club.

Much love

We are sure Vanessa would be thrilled this Fund has now passed the $30,000 mark.

All the love and friendship she put out into the world will certainly be felt by the Garvan Institute.

Thank you for honouring her legacy. Please keep spreading the word.
