RACE 4 LIFE

Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients

In 2016, Mel Coates was given the horrible news that no woman wants to hear. A diagnosis of Breast Cancer. Mel received this information with great courage and committed herself to living life to the fullest

Three weeks ago, approximately 22 months after having her breast cancer diagnosis, a further diagnosis of Brain cancer was placed on her lap. Mel decided then and there, alongside her best friend Chery, that  . she would love to spend some precious time with her two wonderful children Sophie (7) and Mason (5) and her loving supportive partner John, to create some special memories

Mel's friend Cheryl, organised for the family to travel to Queenstown on April 26th to 30th. While planning a fun time for the family,one of the service providers suggested to Cheryl to contact our Trust

Together with businesses in Queenstown, Auckland and Arrowtown, we have managed to organise a stunning wish for Mel.
