Our Dreamers - Dreams2Live4

Our Dreamers range from 17 to 97 years old, from all walks of life, with all types of cancer, and they all have their own unique dreams.

We have had weddings, hot air ballooning, adventures to the reef and snow. Some Dreamers ask to record a song, fix up a car, learn something new or meet their idol. Other Dreamers long to create lasting happy memories for those they leave behind in the form of family photographs, getaways and family reunions. Or it could be as simple as having their hair done so the nurses see them at their best.

Here are just some of the amazing dreams we have had the privilege to work on.
