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?

Adult patients who have been diagnosed with any of the following are encouraged to contact Dreams2Live4 about receiving a Dream.
  • Metastatic cancer – meaning any cancer which has spread from its original site
  • Advanced Glioma Stage 3 and 4
  • Relapsed lymphoma
  • Relapsed leukaemia
