‘Just follow your heart’: Hospice wedding for Wendy

Family First Comment: An inspiring and beautiful story of getting married.  

It’s taken 23 years, four children and terminal cancer for Wendy Fred and Savali Ieli​ to finally tie the knot.

And it’s all thanks to the generosity of Totara Hospice South Auckland.

Wendy has been using Totara Hospice’s services on and off since March 2015 after she was diagnosed with terminal bile duct cancer.

The Mangere couple had decided to wed just two days before the ceremony. Wendy’s condition had worsened so the hospice took over.

“Hospice said they would do everything. We thought we better do something now before something happens. I am getting sicker and maybe one day I may not recover,” Wendy says.
