Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Moe is a gentle and humble Samoan lady who has just turned 51. She is suffering from breast cancer, which has metastasized into her bones and lungs.

Race4Life was fortunate to talk to Moe late last week when she happened to mention that all her family were visiting and staying with her until Tuesday, when they fly home. The opportunity for them all to be together is very precious right now, so we decided to try and arrange them a special lunch at very short notice.
Thanks to Lance and Lara from The Merchant Bar & Kitchen, that is exactly what transpired. This afternoon the entire family including Nana at 91, right down to the youngest grandchild, came together to celebrate life and family!

Lance, Lara and all the crew from the Merchant, thank you all so much for your kindness, compassion and hospitality!!
