Some people jump out of planes; Carol’s risk was to jump on to one.

In Memory Treatment Good Sort

Carol Bartlett was a New Zealand teacher, fisherwoman and photo enthusiast who lived life to the full, and who gave generously to many causes – including the lost ones.

After enjoying a break with her Canadian twin sister, she suffered a heart attack on her direct flight home from Vancouver to Auckland. The captain diverted the plane to Honolulu, where she underwent emergency treatment and subsequently died on September 12, 2016. At her request, her corneas and tissue were donated for use by others.

The Pali Momi Medical Center where Carol spent several days is not for profit, but intensive care comes at a cost, especially in the U.S., and it must be paid for. We invite those who knew and loved Carol to help cover the bill, which runs into six figures.

“God bless”
“Such a moving story. My deepest condolences to your friends, family, whanau and others who knew you.”
“My wife had a suspected Heart attack while on holiday in a USA state. While we had medical insurance, it took almost 6 months before the "Helicopter" company stopped threatening me with lawyers and outrageous bill for their services. While we appreciated the service, the same flight in the same chopper in NZ would have been about a 5th of the price according to a friend who works for a NZ rescue helicopter. The demands were stressful because I would have had to take out another mortgage in my retirement to pay for it. So we hope this little bit helps”
“With love to Claire and Carol's family and friends”
“Very sad - thinking of Claire and all Carol's other friends and family”
“Julie and Stephen Sincere Sympathy to you and your families,our love and thoughts are with you all at this time ,and in the days that lie ahead. Love Rosie and Bruce”
“Touched by your effort to compensate a not for profit organisation who took care of Carol and so honour her memory”
“Hi there I didn't know Carol or her family but i know what financial pressure is like and to lose someone you love is hard enough,”

“Arohanui Carol, and Kia Kaha Clare”
