I feel lucky because of my son Chris. 

I have meet many people and had incredible experiences thanks to him.

This is a photo of Chris, me and my husband Koni at the IHC Art Awards in Wellington in 2013.

We had a fantastic time, all the more poignant as my husband died two months after the photo was taken.

Chris gave us a very happy memory.

So not only do I support Chris, I also cared for my husband during the many years he was ill.

When Koni was sick, we considered traveling a pilgrim’s route together (although not walking).

Now I plan to dedicate this Walk for Wellbeing to my family.

It has been a tough time recently, but it has made me realise that good memories are gold!
