WA unites to remember Attilia Tomasi


Support and services for women who have experienced infant loss, preterm birth and a cancer journey, have received a boost following a recent appeal to remember and celebrate the life of Attilia Tomasi.

The Tomasi family decided that they wanted a WA charity to receive donations in honour of Attilia, who passed away from breast cancer in September 2018.

WIRF was the charity chosen because of its support for women and families facing the challenges that Attilia also faced – the death of a child at only one week of age in 1973 and ultimately, breast cancer.

The Tomasi family appreciates and understand the importance of research as well as programs that directly support women and mothers in real need. As such, they have requested that the donations be directed to support WIRF’s work into perinatal loss and women’s cancers.

In addition, the Appeal will directly benefit WA women and their babies by providing material aid including Women’s Care Packages and Baby Bundles.

Everyone at WIRF would like to thank the Tomasi family and their friends for their incredible generosity to Attilia’s Appeal which has raised an incredible $25,000 to-date.

If you would like to dedicate an appeal to WIRF, or conduct community-based fundraising on behalf of the Foundation, please contact us here or on (08) 6458 1437.
