Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Anita Baker, is a 49 year old lady who suffers from Ovarian Cancer. Presently Anita is in a good space and doctors have recommended that if she were to want to do anything special, that now was the time. Anita approached our Trust with a special request. She has never been to Mt Cook, and after attending our Patient function with Mark Inglis being our guest speaker, Anita decided there and then, that this is what she would love to do, before she died.

On Saturday Anita and her friend Nagreta are off on their adventure. They will fly to Timaru where Hertz Car Rentals have generously gifted Anita a car for the time they are in the South.

The ladies will make their way to Mt Cook Hermitage Hotel where for two days they will be spoilt by the hotel staff. They have been booked on a Tasman Valley 4WD and Argo Tour and have an opportunity to participate in the Big Sky Stargazing Tour. All meals have been provided by the various eateries on the Hermitage complex.

What an adventure!

On behalf of all of us at Race4Life, we wish Anita and Nagreta a fantastic time. We thank the Hermitage Hotel and Hertz Rental cars for making Anita’s dream come true!
