Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Three Wishes

on September 20, 2013

On Tuesday Pippa was granted a wish from Make-A Wish Australia.  The local branch delivered the wish to her and although she didn’t have a lot to say at the time, she woke up Wednesday morning and hasn’t stopped talking about it since.


Tomorrow morning we fly to Cairns for a week staying in Palm Cove so Pippa can live her wish and snorkel with the fish on the Great Barrier Reef.

Our whirlwind life continues.  A crazy mix of highs, lows and lots of in betweens.  It will be wonderful to be in some hot weather, enjoying the beach and some amazing adventures.  We will create some more wonderful memories and I’m sure that snorkelling on the reef will be an experience Pippa will always remember.

I am currently the laughing stock of my family as my wish is to just lie on the beach for the entire week and be rotated every now and then;  my children’s wish for me is that my memory returns!

Thank You Make-A-Wish.  Pippa’s smile will be permanently on her face for the next 7 days.  Whether or not the other two wishes come true remains to be seen………
