Anne's Wish - Cruise on the Emmy Lou
In August 2013, Anne from Ballarat Victoria was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). She commenced chemotherapy at the Olivia Newton John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne for several months. Her two sisters (who are also Anne's best friends), Trish and Margaret stayed with Anne during this time.
Anne's health has deteriorated now and her support crew at The Austin Hospital nominated her to have a short 2 day break with her sisters to spend some special quality time together. Her sisters knew that Anne had always wanted a ride on the Emmy Lou Paddle Steamer in Echuca and we were able to present her wish to her in the presence of her sisters on 26 March.
Their smiles and graciousness was inspiring and we know they are going to have some wonderful and treasured moments on their holiday which commenced on Friday 28 March. Thank you to Lyndon from Madison Spa Resort for the significant donation towards their accommodation, The Port of Echuca for supplying passes for the sisters and the Emmy Lou for helping us put this wish together. We hope you all have a wonderful time - All aboard!
