Etihad’s VIP

29 Jun 2017

Etihad’s VIP Image

Breast cancer patient and avid Sydney Swans supporter Jill Norris was treated to a special game day at Etihad Stadium last month.

Ms Norris, from St Albans, has been a Swans fan since she was a teenager. Before she was diagnosed, she had not had many opportunities to watch live games due to busy work commitments.

She was invited to be a VIP guest at the Swans versus Saints game at Etihad Stadium, where she and her parents enjoyed Medallion Club seats, lunch, Swans merchandise and buggy services.

Ms Norris said her day at the game was “absolutely awesome”.

“I was treated like royalty by the stadium staff. They were there to take care of everything,” she said. “The day was even better when the Swans won!” she said.

Ms Norris’ special day was part of the Western Health and Mercy Health’s Wellcare Program at Sunshine Hospital.

The program provides a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment for people with life-limiting illness.

Ms Norris also visited ArtVo at Harbour Town in June as part of the program.

“The Wellcare Program makes me feel I am not going through anything wrong,” she said. “I don’t get asked questions about my illness and there is no judgement. I do not feel like an outcast.”
