Trace Richey Masters of Cancer and Haematology Nursing Scholarship
The Masters of Cancer and Haematology Nursing, provided by global leader in health education the University of Sydney, enables registered nurses to build on the knowledge they have already gained, giving them the skills required to move into a specialist role and take their career to the next level.
Arrow proudly provides one Trace Richey scholarship per year for a registered nurse to pursue this invaluable opportunity, learning from experts in cancer care and haematology nursing at one of the world’s top nursing schools.
The Trace Richey scholarship is awarded in honour of Trace Richey – a fun-loving cheeky man with a wicked sense of humour and a pure heart of gold. Trace had a tremendous passion for helping others and as a professional fundraiser worked tirelessly for a variety of charities.
In 2014 Trace was diagnosed with MDS and a year later, aged just 50, he dies of acute graft vs host disease, following a bone marrow transplant.
This scholarship, for nurses working in the field of bone marrow transplants, was founded by Trace’s family and friends to honour his memory – and show their eternal gratitude to the nurses at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney, who so tirelessly and lovingly cared for Trace.
“The nurses made such a difference to Trace’s stay in the hospital. They made a HUGE difference to his last few months. It takes a really special person to work in the field of haematology oncology, so this is our thanks to them.
It is very important that we honour Trace’s memory and introduce him to future nurses, putting smiles on new faces, ensuring he is never forgotten.”
