Why not purchase a bottle or two of Fiona's favourite chardonnay to drink a toast to her memory and support CIKA?

On the 13th of October 2017, the CIKA team came together to remember and recognise Fiona Gilchrist (nee Love) one of CIKA's children who passed in June 2016.

CIKA had purchased a biomedical freezer in memory of Fiona and, along with her parents Faye and Michael, her sister Sarah, Fiona's husband Jamie, and all her wonderful friends, we were able to share the journey of her life.

The morning commenced with a presentation from CIKA vice president, Ellen Webb. Then followed the Fiona's story told by her husband Jamie.

Dr Louise Ludlow, Coordinator of the Children's Cancer Centre Tissue Bank updated the guests about the work that she undertakes and the valuable contribution that the new freezer has provided.

Fiona's mother, Faye, concluded the event and extended thanks from the family for the support that they had received from all present.
