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

  • Would she see her son in time?

    As a mother, I can only imagine the stress she was under. Karen was trying to put on a brave face but that day she was consumed with worry for her son, an Australian soldier, who was being sent to Afghanistan in just a few weeks. Would she see her son in time? See more

  • Carla’s friends were the ones who kept her afloat!

    Forty-seven year old Carla had always been the adventurous type. She loved the outdoors, her friends and the ocean. When the breast cancer she had beaten 3 years earlier returned, her life became a regime of doctors appointments, procedures and drugs. See more

  • What a Guy!

    “So often my illness has meant my family misses out but today I could give them something no other mother could.” Alice’s Dream was to introduce a very special visitor to her children. See more

Dreams2Live is a visionary program that realises the dreams of patients of The Prince of Wales Hospital who are living with metastatic cancer. Each year our small and dedicated team deliver more than 100 dreams to patients facing life threatening disease. Our challenge is providing inspirational support and care to these people and their families in their darkest hours. It may be meeting a famous person, a holiday for a family, a wedding or a trip to a sporting event for a fan – the requests are many and varied but the result the same - we create life affirming experiences for them and their loved ones at time when they are struggling to find meaning and happiness in their life.


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

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
