In memory of Clare Alcock

By Joanna Alcock

In memory of someone special

Clare Mary Alcock (13/07/1962 - 23/12/2022) was a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister and cousin who will be remembered for her kindness, generosity and bright spirit that touched everyone she met. Clare was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2019. After bravely fighting for the past few years, she succumbed to her illness just before Christmas. Before becoming a mother to Jack, Kate and Joanna, Clare was an accomplished nurse who was passionate about providing the best possible care to those in need of it. Clare would no doubt be pleased that, in her memory, we are taking donations for The McGrath Foundation, which funds a team of almost 200 Breast Cancer Nurses operating around Australia, and is renowned for being an impactful and effective charity. We give you our thanks in advance for any contribution you are able to make, to honour our angel Clare.

Giving a gift in a loved one’s memory is a meaningful and special way to honour and remember them.  Your donations will help our McGrath Breast Care Nurses to support more families experiencing breast cancer, no matter where they live and for free, so we greatly appreciate your support at this difficult time. Your donations will help us to make a real difference.

Thank you for your support.
