Neil's visionary thinking will ensure a future of groundbreaking medical oncology research at Cabrini

“We need to take these giant leaps in cancer research discovery if we are to make significant steps forward in finding new treatments for patients"

Neil Beauglehall was a great Aussie battler, who came from humble beginnings. A tough but fair man, Neil wasn’t afraid of hard work and over the span of 50 years built a transport empire that ultimately allowed him to give back to others.

He was also a visionary man.

After being diagnosed with oesophageal cancer,  Neil knew his time was limited and wanted to put in place a legacy to help researchers find a cure to this dreaded disease.

While undergoing treatment, Neil pledged to donate from his estate to Cabrini to establish a prestigious Endowed Chair position for medical oncology research. Not bound to a particular researcher, it will ensure Cabrini will always have a future of highly esteemed leaders and brightest minds in medical oncology research.

This, he hoped, would give others the fighting chance he never had.
