Elaine was loved by her family as a caring mother, sister and daughter.
As a professional she applied that caring to being what was known as a “Triple Certificate Nurse”, that is, a Nurse, Midwife and Child Health Nurse.
Her caring was recognised with being awarded the inaugural “Western Australian Community Nurse of the Year” in 2004.
When she was in need of caring herself, her mind went to think about how she could help people, in a similar situation to herself, get appropriate caring.
It was this caring attitude which progressed to her wish to support “Sock It To Sarcoma!”.
It is is with the utmost gratitude that Sock it to Sarcoma! would like to acknowledge the generosity of the family of the late Elaine Green with a $35,000 donation towards supporting patients who have been diagnosed with sarcoma.
