Legacy of Grace Cuming OAM

As far back as Rosemary Mangiamele can remember, her mother, Grace Cuming OAM supported the hospital.

During her many years of involvement, Grace touched many areas of the hospital.

“My mother made the RCH her family. She was always at the hospital or doing something to support it.”

Initially a member of the Camberwell Canterbury Auxiliary, Grace eventually became Vice President of the RCH Auxiliaries, President of the RCH Volunteer Service, Honourary Secretary of the RCH Auxiliaries, and Vice President of the RCH Committee of Management.

Following a lifetime of service to the hospital, Grace left behind an incredible legacy when she passed away in 2014. Her Gift to the RCH Foundation in her Will continues to support research at the hospital.

“My mother had a very special, generous spirit. I’m so proud of her contribution to the hospital and the ground-breaking research initiatives her generosity is helping to foster.”
