Shae Gibson Women's Cancer Support Fund

The Shae Gibson Women’s Cancer Support Fund has been established from Shae's estate and donations to support women from a lower socio-economic background to meet some of the costs of their cancer treatment so they can focus on their recovery.

$8,072
raised of $50,000 Goal

Shae Gibson was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2016. Shae fought hard to fight this aggressive disease for almost three years before passing away on 11th January 2019 at age 32.

Throughout her time with us, Shae’s goal was for her life to have real meaning, to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of others, to effect change in real and tangible ways.

Shae always considered others first, constantly thinking of other people’s needs rather than her own, and sought to help where she could. Shae was a patient at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse and through her cancer journey met many other women fighting the disease. 

Shae was appointed to the Partnership Advisory Council in late 2016 and used this position to better understand the challenges and experiences of many cancer patients. She learnt that for many women, there were significant costs in treating their cancers: costs of medicines, tests and treatments, loss of income because of inability to work, costs to have family nearby to support them

In her final weeks, Shae instructed her Executor and family to establish a special fund from her estate to work with the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse team to support such women in need. Shae wanted to assist women from a lower socio-economic background to meet some of these costs so they could focus on recovery and not experience the stress of severe financial constraints.

The Shae Gibson Women’s Cancer Support Fund has been established by the Lifehouse to achieve this goal. The Gibson Family are part of an Advisory Committee to support the Lifehouse team in managing donations and grants to eligible women.
