Lari Allenbick Award
Fabry Australia wanted to acknowledge the excellent contributions being made in Australia by the Australian Fabry Doctors. The Committee agreed an award at the biannual Fabry Conference named after founding Committee member (Treasurer and Secretary) and Honorary Life Member the late Lari Allenbick would be most appropriate.
Who was Lari Allenbick?
Lari Allenbick (September 1947 – August 2013) was very devoted to Fabry Australia and dedicated to its mission and vision to see the Australian Fabry community united and supported in their bid to raise awareness and continue research into Fabry Disease.
Lari lost his battle to Fabry Disease in August 2013. Fabry Australia has fond memories of fun times with Lari at events and catch ups with Fabry friends.
He is sadly missed but never forgotten.
