Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Roger Smith's daughter Toni, was determined to give her dying father and her family a lasting memory. Roger who had planned a fishing trip earlier this week, became too ill to fulfill his wish to spend some time on the water with his two grandsons. Like his daughter, Roger has a tremendous courage and determination and when the opportunity to fly in a helicopter was presented to him,  he did not hesitate to put his hand up!!.

The Thames airfield is 5 minutes away from the hospital . Today, Wednesday February 3rd , Roger was accompanied by a nurse from Thames hospital and his two grandsons for a flight in a helicopter piloted by Caleb Green from Skyworks Helicopters.

A very special time for all involved, creating a very precious memory
