“He has been by my side and never once let me down.”

We received an email this morning from Tracie. Like so many of our Dreamers, she yearns to have the power to give back to the person who has been by her side. To share precious time away far from waiting rooms, scans, treatments and chemo wards. To find each other again. “My dream is to have a romantic getaway with my husband. In June 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was tough on everyone but it was harder for my husband to see his wife battle this horrible disease. He has constantly been by my side through out the whole process and never once has he let me down by taking me to my appointments, making sure the house is still running smoothly, working 6 days a week at one stage but mostly being there for me as my carer and my best friend.
In July 2012 I was well enough to go back to work and start getting things back to normal (a new beginning).But unfortunately that new beginning didn’t last for long.In May 2014 I was diagnosed with metastasis (in my liver and bones).My family and friends have been a tower of strength.
For the past 2 years I had been on chemo but when my body has needed the break from chemo unfortunately 6 weeks was the longest amount of time I could have off as the cancer came back aggressively.As of now I will be on chemo for the rest of my life.
My Dream is to share quality time with my husband so we can concentrate on each other and just forget about everything else for a few days. ”
Thanks to our supporters, Dreams2live4 is helping Tracie make her Dream come true. As I type, Dream Maker Louise is on the phone making bookings for the couple to have much needed precious time out. Dreams2live4 is a nationally registered charity which helps patients living with metastatic to realise a dream. Metastatic cancer means any cancer which has spread from its original site. Cancer drains families of joy, hope and finances. It can be a long and gruelling battle. By offering patients a chance to dream, we reignite a sense of control and optimism in their lives. Conversations change and so does the outlook of patients and their families. To find out more please go to www.dreams2live4.org.au
