A south-west family is seeking the community's support to help fulfil a terminally ill woman's dying wish to marry her partner.
Sharon Hamblin, 60, previously of Warrnambool and now of Glenthompson, attended the doctors with stomach pains on January 13 and was rushed to the Alfred Hospital with bowel ischemia - a condition where blood slows or stops flowing to the intestines.
She was told her body would not handle life-saving surgery and that she had one month to live.
In her final weeks, Sharon has made a bucket list that includes marrying her long-time partner Les and visiting the Ballarat Wildlife Park.
Daughter-in-law Sonia Knights said Sharon and Les met through mutual friends and had been a "loving and doting" couple for the last 10 years.
"They're just your typical Aussie grandma and grandpa, they're excellent," she said.
The pair hope to get married at the Glenthompson Church before visiting the Ballarat Wildlife Park.
"Sharon's never been to a wildlife park or a zoo, which just absolutely blew me away," Sonia said.
"The other thing she wanted to do was visit Summer Bay in New South Wales because she loves Home and Away but unfortunately because of her condition she isn't allowed to fly."
Sonia has set up a GoFundMe campaign in the hope of funding Sharon's dream wedding. She said the fundraising campaign had raised nearly $1000 in six days.
"The community has just been absolutely amazing," she said.
"Cobbs Bakery in Port Fairy have already donated a fruit cake for the wedding. I am just so grateful that people do care, even some people that we have never even met."
Sonia said she really hoped she could see Sharon marry the love her life.
"She is always willing to help anyone in need. She truly has a heart of gold and she deserves to marry Les," she said.
"At the moment she's at home receiving palliative care but her three daughters Natasha, Kelly and Stacey have come over from New Zealand and her sons Daniel, Damo and Chris are here," she said.
"All the family is here and (Sharon) is in really good spirits."

"If you can donate anything at all it would be so appreciated," Sonia said.
"No amount is to small, every cent helps."
