Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


Stephen is a very brave 62year old Gentleman from Hamilton. He has cancer which has now metastasized and is affecting his vital organs. Stephen has realised that time is precious and so he contacted Race4life with a special wish to visit Wellington and Te Papa via a road trip!
Stephen has a very good friend Hadley, who warmly agreed to be part of this road trip and support his friend on this cool journey.

The gentlemen left on Wednesday this week and toured down past Mt Taranaki to stay at the Kings Court Motor Lodge​ in Whanganui where they were warmly hosted by Carol.
Yesterday, they enjoyed their drive to Wellington. Stephen especially enjoying a view of Kapati island.
The gentlemen will be hosted in luxury for two nights in Wellington at QT Museum Wellington​ thanks to Garth and his team.
Today will be Stephen’s big day, starting with a personalised tour of the Gallipoli exhibition. A lovely lunch at the Te Papa​ Cafe, an afternoon of Te Papa Museum appreciation and a warm and hearty dinner at Joe's Garage​.
Stephen and Hadley will enjoy a road trip back to Hamilton, stopping for a comfortable and restful night at the Wairakei Resort Taupo​.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who have helped make Stephen’s wish a reality!!!!!!
