Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Richmond Villeran is on last line chemotherapy for Neuroendocrine Cancer. Richmond and his wife Maria have two children aged 5 and 11 years who he always promised to take to Disneyland.

Unfortunately the doctors advised against travelling that far and suggested perhaps a holiday to Australia, where the theme parks offer a similar experience for the family. A few phone calls and before we knew it the family were off to the Gold Coast to spend 6 days  visiting Theme Parks and exploring the beautiful coast of Australia.

Hick Bros, an Auckland Construction company generously provided the family with entry to 6 theme parks, provided an Avis  rental car at the family's disposal and 6 days accommodation at the Ocean Royale in Boardbeach.

Virgin Australia gifted two airfares and Complete Travel Solutions in Brisbane, offered to pay the other two. Co-op Taxis provided transport for the family to and from the airport.

The family had a simply amazing time away. The photo alone tells the story

Thank you to one all. What an amazing outcome!!
