BRILIN Introduction

Origin of BriLin (Ron Bisset) In October 2008 my daughter Linda (45, with seven children, the youngest four months old) was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given just five months to live. Words cannot describe our feelings. We had already lost a 19 year old son in a motor accident. We approached other doctors and hospitals that specialised in Cancer treatment but the best that could be offered was from the Wakefield hospital in Wellington who could give some treatment that may prolong life by a few months at a cost of around $40,000. Quality of life would not be good. There was just nowhere to go – total despair. What did we have going for us? 1...Linda’s very positive attitude proved to be an inspiration for so many people – doctors, nurses, family and all who met her. She never gave up hope, she comforted others, and she had a great sense of humour right up to the day she died. 2....Raymond, Linda’s husband of 24 years never failed in his loving support. He gave up work to be with her and the children facing the daunting prospect of becoming a solo dad to seven children. 3...Our family and friends. It is at times like this you find out just how indispensible the comfort and support they provide is. Hands on
