With your support, we can make dreams come true

The Dreams Project is a HammondCare Foundation initiative that brings transformative experiences to patients of all ages who are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and their families. We’re driven to create dreams that bring joy and comfort as part of our commitment to relationship-based care. For many, it’s a chance to spend time with loved ones and create memories in their final days.

Whether a patient chooses a weekend away, a vow renewal, or to say goodbye to a much-loved pet, each dream is unique and empowers patients to feel a sense of normality and purpose. With more than 2,000 palliative care patients, we need generous donors like you to make dreams come true.

Out of Africa and into the photo album

Tracy grew up in Africa and loved animals. In the final stages of palliative care, she was able to relive the fascination that she shared and loved with her young daughter Taya during a memory-making weekend away at Jamala Wildlife Lodge.

The Dream Team

It was a difficult time for Mick when his lung cancer required admission to the palliative care ward at Greenwich Hospital. But a visit by his 2005 Premiership Wests Tigers heroes brought a sparkle to his eyes and his dream to life.

Magical memories with Merlin

Deise’s aggressive neck and facial cancer took away her joy of speaking and eating. But there was one passion that couldn’t be taken from Deise: her love of cats. The Dreams Project organised visits from two special and cuddly cats, including Merlin, who gave her hope and the will to live again.

Help us pursue life-affirming initiatives

HammondCare Foundation is committed to creating and supporting life-affirming initiatives that help further our Mission to improve quality of life for people in need. The Dreams Project does this through listening to the hopes and wishes of patients and families, and helping them achieve special moments that might otherwise have been impossible. Every life is valuable and every moment matters. The Dreams Project, like, many other initiatives, uphold the Foundation’s five strategic pillars.
