Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


John Andrews has always been a family man. When John received his terminal diagnosis it wasn’t out of character that he should think of family first. John’s special wish is to leave a lasting memory of a family portrait for his blended family, to remember him and the fun times. On Saturday Vaughan Scott from VSIMAGES has volunteered his amazing skills to be put to the task.

While we were chatting John did mention his special desire to ride in a hot air balloon before he dies. On December 2nd we have managed to organise a night for John and Sandra at the Lake Point Motel and an evening meal at the Victoria St Bistro in Hamilton. The next morning they will be up at the crack of dawn to be taken on a hot air balloon ride by Mark Browne from the Kiwi Balloon Company.

How cool is that!
