The Jill Lindsay Bowel Cancer Research Award

Jill Lindsay was the VFL/AFL’s longest-serving employee, having completed 41 years in various roles. She was the first woman honoured with Life Membership in the competition’s history.  She is remembered as a highly respected and outstanding executive, a trailblazer across the VFL/AFL and a mentor to many women across the football industry. Jill was also a cherished member of the Tuxedo Junction Committee in 2009.

On February 7, 2011, Jill passed away after losing her battle with bowel cancer.

“We live in a rapidly changing world and have doubtless all seen and experienced things we never imagined possible. Generous community support and decades of investment in world-class research have brought about a lifetime of progress in how we prevent, detect and treat cancer. But there is much more to do…   Cancer never rests and, with your help, neither will we.



“So it has been a life long ambition for our family to try to help in some small way towards in improving bowel cancer outcomes and now the Cancer Council Victoria has given us that opportunity.

While for us this is a great tribute to our mother it is also for all the other families out there in the future. Ongoing and rigorous research in Australia is the only way to ensure that the other families don’t lose loved ones too soon.”

– Lina Caneva

“It’s nights like these that help so much.  Getting together for many laughs and good times. Tonight is about celebration.  It is nights such as this that have helped this man, my dad, to continue to have hope for the future, and with the right help, the right research and the right attitude, there is always hope.  Thanks Tuxedo Junction for the funds raised that, by extension, have helped keep my dad alive these 12 years.”
