What is a wish or comfort?

A wish or comfort aims to provide a break and distraction from the realities of living with a serious illness. At a time of uncertainty, spending quality time with loved ones or doing something you've always wanted to do or having a special comfort, can help restore a sense of normality, boost morale and create precious memories for the future. Every special day is the recipeints choosing and is tailored to meet their needs ‐ offering an uplifting and positive experience to be shared with a partner, parents, siblings, children or close friends.

"The memories and time spent will always be so precious to all of us. The joy that the trip brought to mum, I cannot place a value on! It was such a blessing to help her just for a little while forget the sickness and her prognosis and to relax, laugh and enjoy! I could see her spirit was lifted up, and she really just appreciated and enjoyed every single minute."
