Mum’s dying wish to live life to full
WHITSUNDAY resident Caroline Gouge wants to dedicate the final months of her life to forging happy memories with her three-year-old son, Braxton.
Caroline has fought a five-year battle with cervical cancer and in a recent trip to Sydney was told it had reached a terminal stage – with an expected 12 to 15-month timeline.
Caroline said she wanted to live the rest of her life to its fullest.
“This is a magic time to spend with my boy and my friends,” she said.
Amy Lyons and friends established a GoFundMe page to help Caroline create memories with Braxton.
A signed and framed State of Origin jersey is being raffled in coming weeks, with tickets to be available at the IGA in Jubilee Pocket, The Reef Gateway Hotel, Jubilee Tavern and Airlie Foreshore Markets.
Proceeds will go to the GoFundMe page.
Ms Lyons encouraged the community to get behind the page, titled “Making memories with Caz”.
