Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


There is so much kindness that lingers around us all. We, here at Race4Life, are privy to this on a daily basis. We are so humbled by the work we are privileged to do.

Ekaterina Shefer is 42 year old Mother of two who only recently was given a devastating diagnosis. Ekaterina, who originates from Russia immigrated to New Zealand with her husband Platon in 2015. Times have been very difficult for this dynamic lady but she continues to make the best of every day. Her special wish was to be able to smile again. Ekaterina snapped a crown on her front tooth earlier this year. She has been too embarrassed to smile and asked for help from the Race4Life to literally "put a smile back on her face!"

Dentistry for Chickens owner Dr Alan Tan has agreed to do this for Ekaterina FOC. A huge thank you to Alan and his team in Remuera.
