In memory of Ian Clayton

Today, more than 50 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 50 families will be devastated by the same news.

We were one of those families in 2017, when our father Ian Clayton was diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia and given 2-9 months to live. He signed up to a clinical trial with AbbVie and made history - he was the longest surviving participant on the trial and the treatment is now available to others. Sadly Dad passed away on March 5th 2022.

The Leukemia Foundation provided support to Dad throughout his treatment and we’d like to raise funds in his memory to help others. 

Please show your support by donating to our fundraising campaign. 

Many Thanks, Aaron, Alaina & Sarah x
