Dave's Story

cancer council logo

Dave Fuller, former adviser and one of the original founders of Spencer Fuller and Associates has been a power of strength both physically and professionally all his life. However, in late 2016 Dave was diagnosed with prostate cancer and the outlook was not good. Dave being Dave, he dug deep and took a positive attitude into chemo and the first battle. Now through this and almost 12 months since his diagnoses Dave is back doing the things he loves, bike riding with his extended family, playing Squash and of course Financial Advice.

Dave has continued to work during his treatments and continues to dedicate his time to his clients. It is this remarkable strength and determination that has seen him through a very difficult period of his life. For those who are suffering with cancer, he knows what they are going through and prior to his diagnoses was a supporter of the Cancer Council and provided Pro Bono advice to those in need.

Spencer Fuller participates in the Cancer Council Pro Bono Program which helps people affected by cancer access free financial, legal, small business and workplace advice, if they cannot afford to pay for it. We have volunteered our time and expertise to help ease the financial burden for cancer patients and their families over the past two years. We provide advice on issues including superannuation, managing debts and accessing Centrelink. We are proud to be able to assist people affected by cancer in our community with financial issues.

Cancer Council NSW is committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community, and to lessening the burden for people affected by cancer. They are the only organisation that works across every area of every cancer – in research, prevention, information and support, and advocacy. Cancer Council NSW is 96% community funded and wouldn’t be able to do this work without the generous support of the community.
