Vidya, the flight recipients mother, is 83 years old and has always lived in Fiji. The flight recipient came to Canada in 1986 and met her husband in Vancouver. She is the youngest daughter out of 8 children and has always had a special relationship with her mother. She has cared for her mother when she visits Fiji, as her mother has not been well for the past 4 years. The last time the flight recipient was able to visit, her mother was bedridden with bed sores but she brought her mother a walker so that her mother was able to be mobile and stay out of bed. Her mother has been ill with ovarian cancer and has pain in her bones. When speaking with her mother on the phone, she tells me she is waiting for her daughter to come see her one last time. Her mother has made many sacrifices for her family throughout her life, and now her daughter want to make her last wish come true.
