Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Gorgeous Joan Lawson has had a very special wish granted this weekend.

Her granddaughter, Egypt  is turning 5, and has wanted her grandmother to celebrate this occasion with her.

The community in Invercargill, where Joan now lives, have rallied together and donated her fare to Hamilton to be with Egypt and family.

Joan’s request to Race4Life was to take her family to Rotorua and to treat them to a special time together, celebrating Egypt and what time Joan has left.

Whilst in Rotorua the family will stay at the Copthorne Hotel. They will visit Rainbow Springs, have a luge and gondola ride at Skyline Rotorua, and spend some time at AmazeMe.

They will dine at Lone Star Rotorua and the Stratosfare Restaurant at Skyline Rotorua.

Again the Rotorua community have embraced this family. We wish Joan and family a weekend full of fun and cherished memories.
