In memory of Tess Cochrane

By Carlie Bendigo Health Foundation

We have created this page in memory of Tess Cochrane.

Tess recently gave a personal donation to  establish a new Oncology Massage service for Bendigo Health’s Palliative Care Unit after seeing the benefits this type of treatment had for Gil.

All donations received will be dedicated honouring Tess’ wishes to provide this Oncology Massage service at Bendigo Health's Community Palliative Care Unit.

Thank you to my Sponsors

What a beautiful lady and neighbour! You fought bravely and with dignity to the end. We just wish we could have known you for longer, before your well lived life was cut far too short xxx

It was a pity that we could not see Tess before she left the families members in VIC. and good friends in WA. She always had warm heart and good spirit while she was in Kununurra. we were good neighbours in front to each others, lovely memories of Tess. The distances is so huge that it is a pity we could not see Tess. Our heart is with the children who were left without their lovely mother Tess.
