Graeme's Wish - Welcome to The Jungle!
On 22 July 2016 Graeme was told he had a brain tumour and was admitted to hospital. On 28 July he had surgery to remove the tumour where they removed as much as they could. On 5 August the family were told that the type of tumour Graeme had was GBM and was Stage 4 and it was an aggressive Cancer.
Lauren contacted The Orange Pigeon Inc. to share her dad’s story and let us know that Guns N Roses, her dad’s favourite band, were returning to Australia for the first time in 20 years and were touring Perth where they lived, for the first time and asked if we would be able to grant Graeme an amazing night.
We were able to secure 4 Diamond Reserved up close tickets for Graeme, his wife Toni and his two daughters. When Graeme received his Wish Pack, Lauren said “Thank you so incredibly much for the little package that came in the mail, it was presented beautifully. When I gave it to my dad, i helped him read through it and he cried of happiness knowing he would be going to see his all-time favourite band.”
After the concert Lauren said “The concert was absolutely INCREDIBLE. Dad loved every second of it, we all sang the songs, and had an amazing time as a family. The seats were perfect, and were really close so you could see what was happening on stage.
We have a family song 'Sweet Child of Mine' that my dad, my sister and I, usually play air guitar and air drums to whenever we hear it, and have done for years. So to hear them play it live was such a surreal moment and it has made so many memories that we can treasure for the rest of our lives.
I cannot thank you enough for doing this for our dad, he is so grateful and talks about the concert all the time. He can now check such a huge thing off of his bucket list all thanks to you. You're amazing!”
We were so glad that you all got to enjoy this special experience together and so thrilled that Graeme was able to see his favourite band up close and got to enjoy ‘Sweet Child of Mine’ with his sweet children and wife.
