Macmillan Nurses in Swindon contacted us about a lady who was suffering from pancreatic cancer She wanted a small break with her husband and children, so we organised a week-long stay at the beautiful Cotswold WaterMark Club. They enjoyed a weekend of beauty treatments, a trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, and the whole experience was an amazing adventure.
We arranged a trip to London for a lady who had suffered with cystic fibrosis for many years and was now receiving palliative care for her illness. Her wish was to visit Buckingham Palace. We did more than that: we managed to arrange transport to and from London, including a hotel for 2 nights, travel around London, and dinner at Marco Pierre White’s restaurant, and a London Pass to visit as many attractions as possible.
One of Lyndsey’s lifetime dreams was to travel through Thailand and Vietnam, so we raised over £25,000 pounds to send her on a trip of a lifetime. Lyndsey’s illness prevented her from staying any longer than 3 weeks, but she had an incredible time and loved it - she didn’t want to come back. Lyndsey survived 18 months after that trip and we filled everyday with fun, laughter and lots of amazing experiences.
After Lyndsey’s passing we decided that instead of raising money for brain tumour research, we wanted to create a charity to give other adults suffering from terminal illnesses the chance to fulfil their dreams, just as Lyndsey had.
