Up Up and Away for Keran
Keran who has Stage 4 Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma (a type of cancer that starts in the bones), had her wish of a ride over the beautiful Barossa Valley has come true.
Keran’s mum Di initially applied for Keran to have a hot air balloon ride over the Barossa Valley, but due to her cancer she had to have her leg amputated and wasn't able to ride in hot air balloons due to safety reasons, So we organised for the next best thing - a Helicopter ride over the Barossa Valley - which turned out to be the best thing with the wonderfully kind people, in particular Bridgette, at the Barossa Helicopters who were amazing and ensured Keran’s wish was perfect in every way. Keran got to fly with her family using 2 helicopters in tandem!
The weather was wonderful which allowed the family to have spectacular scenery throughout their flight.The family got to experience two wineries and have lunch at the gorgeous Kies Wines Winery.
They also stayed the night in the heart of the Barossa! A fabulous experience and quality time for Keran with her family.
Keran's mum said “the day was an absolute treasure, what a perfect day; the helicopter pilots were unbelievable girls and treated us with heartfelt respect and adoration. I must say Keran thoroughly enjoyed the visits to the wineries, lunch and the flight. We will be forever grateful to your foundation. Your service has enabled us to enjoy what was a perfect life experience.”
