A father of four had fulfilled his last wish when his paramedics stopped so that he could see the ocean for the last time.
Chris Shaw (45) fought for 14 months against stomach cancer before he died on 31 August last year and left his wife Kylie and children Emily, 11, Ruby, 9 and a six-year-old twin Charlotte and Isaac.
In honor of his death, Mrs. Shaw remembers the friendliness of two transport officers from St. John Ambulance who gave him an experience he could not buy.
The officers, Jade and Jesse, brought Mr. Shaw to Currambine, a northern suburb of Perth, to live his last days at home.
Mrs. Shaw asked the officers if they could make a detour to Burns Beach so that her husband & # 39; could feel the sun and wind on his body & # 39; and & # 39; could feel normal on his favorite beach for 20 minutes & # 39 ;.
Chris Shaw, 45, died on August 31, 2018 after 14 months of fighting stomach cancer. He got the dying wish to see Burns Beach while he was being transported home for his last two weeks
& # 39; We are an ocean family and this is our favorite beach. It was the smallest gesture, but it meant the world & Shaw said The Western Australian.
& # 39; They were our angels that day & # 39 ;.
Shaw had a cough and reflux when he was diagnosed with aggressive cancer in June 2017.
After undergoing chemotherapy, doctors said he was in remission in February 2018.
But four months later, Mr. Shaw's cancer had returned and spread to his lymph nodes and bones.
Mrs. Shaw said the family was told that he only had three days to live, but that he lasted six weeks – four weeks in the hospital and two at home.
& # 39; We have spent so many family moments on that beach. We would sit down and take a Corona, the children ran around and we watched the sunset, & Mrs. Shaw said.

The ambulance officers met the Shaw family on Burns Beach on the occasion of the one-year anniversary.
Jade said it was & # 39; heart warming and humble & # 39; was to be called an angel, and added that experience has changed her way of working.
Mrs. Shaw wrote on Facebook and said her husband gave her a & # 39; bucket list & # 39; had left with things he wanted for her and the children to do before she passed.
& # 39; Some are easy to do and some long-term, some I have achieved, some I am working on and some are work in progress & she wrote.
& # 39; One of them is to try to publicize as much as possible the charity No stomach for cancer. & # 39;
Mrs. Shaw said her husband got his wish because the increased media coverage of the anniversary of his death pays more attention to the aggressive cancer.
She said that West Australian fundraising enabled the family to keep their home and that money was also raised for cancer research and awareness.
Mrs. Shaw asked the officers if they could make a detour to Burns Beach so that her husband & # 39; could feel the sun and wind on his body & # 39; and & # 39; could normally feel on his favorite beach for 20 minutes & # 39;
