Jacinta has advanced and terminal Huntington's Disease. Her condition is deteriorating fast, so much so that she now resides in a facility who care for her day to day.
Jacinta has an 8 year old son Jarrod and has always wanted to take him to the Gold Coast to experience the rides at the Theme parks and see the dolphins. She is a single mum to Jarrod and wants to be able to create some memorable and fun moments with him before she is too unwell to travel and before her disease takes it's toll on her.
The Orange Pigeon was touched by Jacinta's story and was so moved by her own mothers's words that we knew Jacinta's wish had to be granted. We went a step further to also include Jacinta's mum and dad as well, so they can have some special times together , as Jarrod is now in their full time care.
Once again the wonderful people at Ashmore Palms Holiday Village reached out and helped by discounting the families accommodation for 7 nights. As a very nice surprise for the family the wonderful folk at Village Roadshow Theme Parks donated 3 VIP Magic Passes for unlimited entry to Warner Brothers Movie World, Sea World and Wet and Wild - which will sure be a big hit with Jarrod!
The photo shows the moment Jacinta received her wish pack, discovering her wish was granted. The expression on her son's face is priceless an beautiful, it also underlines the wishes we deliver not only provides much needed happiness an respite for their families watching their loved ones so unwell.
