Over 200 families now helped

Supporting families affected by cancer


At just 41 years of age, on Remembrance Day 11 November 2003, Lisa Fahey was taken, after a short battle with cancer, from her husband Steve and her children, Amelia and Patrick, her parents, grandma and her many friends.

Lisa and her family learned a great deal about the difficulties and challenges of living with cancer and it was Lisa’s wish that a foundation be created to extend assistance, support and kindness to other families who find themselves in the same situation.

Since 2005, Lisa Fahey Foundation has assisted more than 200 South Australian families with a parent or carer who has cancer.

Why the chook?

Lisa affectionately referred to almost everyone as “chook”. We thought it fitting to carry Lisa’s down-to-earth and fun-loving spirit into the work of the Foundation.
