Story

(The cover photograph was taken last year when I visited Fiona. She is the one on the left of the cover photograph and I am on the right).

Fiona is my life-long dear friend who needs our help to provide palliative care during her last months of life.

She is in a dire situation where she does not qualify for local palliative care. She cannot afford to pay for it privately and she has no family in Australia to care for her.

Very sadly, just a few weeks ago, at only 56 years, she was given the worst possible news by her doctor - that she only has 3-4 month left. Her greatest wish is not to die alone; and if possible to have someone near and dear to her to be with her during these last few months.

With your help, I plan to go out as soon as possible to be her carer. I am also an ex-nurse and can provide the basic care that she will need. It will be my privilege to be a loving and caring friend when she most needs it.

My NHS employer has very kindly given me leave so that I can go out asap. However, it is unpaid and I cannot personally fund the costs involved. I estimate that it will cost about £18,000 to cover all of the costs. Please help if you can by either giving directly, or by sharing the link to this fund-raising page on all of your social media (facebook etc) and ask your friends and contacts to share it on theirs. This way we can succeed in giving Fiona her last wish - to have someone near and dear to her during her last months and especially at the end. Thank you.

I will take a leap of faith and book the flight !

I will also use the Justgiving page to keep you informed about Fiona. Please join me to help Fiona. Thank you again.

    Please keep sharing this link to keep up the good work to support fund-raising for Fiona's end of life care. Without your help to fund raise I would not be able to give up my work to be Fiona's carer during her terminal illness. D-day is almost here! I fly out on Tuesday 31 July until the end. Your donations or fund-raising events will help me to be there for as long as needed. If I'm honest...my heart sinks at the thought of the task ahead. It's going to be tough in every way. Thank you again for sharing the link or donating . Xx
