Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Melissa Ann Bennet is a young 32year old who is tragically suffering from a grade 4 astrocytoma brain tumour.
She has huge mobility problems and has been placed in a private nursing home, which is very isolating for such a young woman.
Her sister is getting married at Port Albert Church on Sunday 19th August, and Melissa’s dearest wish is to be able to go to the wedding.
Karen Mcginty is spending the morning helping Melissa look Fab for the wedding and Race4Life Trust have been donated a mobility vehicle for the day by Rod Milner Motors and Disability Vehicle Rentals Ltd.

Jonnie Moore, our wonderful volunteer, is happy to devote his day to transporting Melissa and her caregiver, to the Wedding and Reception, then safely home again.


Enjoy your day Melissa!
