North Lakes palliative care patient David had a passion for fishing, and always wanted to bring his children to his not-so-secret spot, the Hawksbury River, promising that he would take them fishing 'one day.’ But like all things, the years passed and life got in the way.

With his children by his side, David cast a line from the Redcliffe Jetty, waiting for the fish to bite. But it wasn't the keen fisherman who ended up with the catch of the day, rather his daughter Danielle, who reeled in a tasty flathead. 🎣

David's promise was made possible by the Ambulance Wish Queensland team including John, Jaime and Dale, and nurse Natasha from our community palliative care.

“It was an honour to spend the day with such an amazing family. The highlight of the day was the catching of the fish. Everyone cheered and clapped, laughed and cried. A memory I will never forget,” Natasha said. 🥰
