Im a single Mum to 3 children 11y, 4y and 2y. My middle son Andre aged 4 was born 24 weeks premature and resulted as a surviving twin, his brother unfortunately passed away after birth. Due to prematurity Andre now suffers from many serious disabilities and health complications, considered terminally ill as he will never get better and progressively getting worse in health as he ages, recently being diagnosed with Upper airway obstruction and thats 1 problem on top of his current many. You can find out more about his illnesses on his facebook page "Andre the Incredible PVL". Basically its my dream as a mother to travel all of NZ with my children as a family for a good month, and it would only make sense to wait till the kids are older but we might miss that opportunity with Andre so we are taking NO risks and doing it this year in September, being a safe time for Andres health after the pandemic and not having tourism around atm.

To be able to make important happy and amazing memories with Andre in as many places of our home country helps me stamp Andre everywhere, so he will never had missed out and my kids will always remember that time with him. Im in desperate need to ask the public to help me full fill this dream financially. Theres many factors i have to consider, including pet care estimated around $1000 alone, petrol, accommodation, or campervan hire, activities, foods, emergency services incase, month worth of medications, accessories we may need as we might end up in tents most of the time depending finances.

In regards to applying to make a wish, we will NOT be receiving any funding from them for this trip around New zealand, and will be using our wish for a more practical peice of equipment to help ensure Andre has the best quality of life. Thank you so much for your love and support.

Use of funds

Petrol, accommodation, travel on the ferry, food, camping accessories, activities, campervan ect
