“The trip to Hydro Majestic in the Blue Mountains was really a dream for us both. It was the first time in months we weren’t all about ‘the cancer’. We were James and Chrissy on our babymoon.”
In September 2018, our Dreamer James underwent surgery to remove a brain tumour. The day before his operation he and his wife, Chrissy, found out that they were expecting their third child.
“At only 35 years old, the news of my terminal cancer was devastating but when my hospital social worker talked to me about Dreams2Live4, my wife Chrissy was the first thing on my mind,” said James.
“I began an undercover operation to surprise her with a trip to the Blue Mountains where I had proposed in 2008. The Hydro Majestic Retreat was a dream destination for my wife who commented on it every time we drove past, but it was more beautiful and grand then we could have imagined.”
“It was the perfect place to take my heavily pregnant wife. We were able to talk about our dreams for our newest baby due to arrive in the coming weeks, switch off and just relax. The smiles on our faces lasted far longer than the weekend and the memories will stay with us for a lifetime.”
“Being able to go into the delivery of our daughter Lennox with some peace and happiness was the greatest gift that we could have received. She has been a real ray of sunshine for our entire family. She has renewed my will to fight.”
“Thank you for your selfless work. The difference and joy your bringing into people’s lives in their scariest days is truly amazing,” James concluded.
