Anthony's grateful family honours his memory with gift

Publish Date: 10/10/2017

The family of a courageous father who lost his battle with blood cancer have made a generous gift to the Leukaemia Foundation to honour his memory and help other families facing blood cancer.

Cris Leon, the Leukaemia Foundation’s General Manager in Queensland, has thanked the Mammino and Puglisi families for their incredibly generous $10,000 gift.

Mammino Gourmet Ice Cream donated $5,000, while the Rotary Club of Stanthorpe donated $5,000 from its Opera in the Vineyards event at Ballandean Estate Wines earlier this year.

The Leukaemia Foundation supported Anthony Mammino and his family with accommodation and emotional support after his blood cancer diagnosis and then grief support after he died.

Many families honour the memories of loved ones with a Gift in Memoriam to the Leukaemia Foundation.
