Metastatic cancer meaning any cancer that has spread

"My life was overwhelmed with illness… Now I am filled with dreams and plans."

  • Her Dream was to swim with Whale sharks. So she did.

    This feisty, brave 23 year old’s Dream was to experience something bigger and more frightening than cancer. So she chose to go face to face with the whale sharks of Western Australia. See more

  • It’s a cracker of a dream!

    “Life isn’t about waiting around for the storm to pass. It’s learning how to dance in the rain. We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.” This is the motto that 60 year old metastatic cancer patient Brenda lives by. Her illness has not stopped her from fundraising for the community and playing soccer with Maroubra. See more

  • He had something to say that couldn’t be said in a letter

    47 year old Rod loves his kids but life had a way of getting in the way. Rod was now living in Sydney while his three children were in Western Australia.

Make a donation today!

Dreams2live4 is a visionary program that realises the dreams of patients living with Metastatic cancer meaning any cancer that has spread, aggressive brain cancer, relapsed lymphoma and relapsed leukaemia. This year our small and dedicated team will work with more than 300 patients facing this life threatening disease.


Why dreams make a difference

Metastatic cancer drains families of joy, hope and finances. It can be a long and gruelling battle for patients. Often they and their partners cannot work and they can no longer do many things that other families take for granted. By offering patients a chance to dream, we reignite a sense of control and optimism in their lives. Conversations change and so does the outlook of patients and their families.

Who can receive a dream?

Patients  who are living with metastatic cancer are encouraged to contact Dreams2live4 about receiving a dream. Recently this has been extended to include patients who have 1st presentation of brain cancer and 2nd presentation of lymphoma and leukemia.

How Can I Help?

Dreams2live4 relies on its community of volunteers to fundraise, source services and make dreams come true. Sometimes its money, other times its knowing someone who can help a dream come true. And sometimes it’s having the personal skill that can help another human being in need. Sign up to help

  • “He has been by my said and never once let me down.”

    We received an email this morning from Tracie. Like so many of our Dreamers, she yearns to have the power to give back to the person who has been by her side. To share precious time away far from waiting rooms, scans, treatments and chemo wards. To find each other again. See more

  • 6 years ago today we lost this vivacious, gutsy, wonderful woman.
