Sacha Clough was overseas when her grandmother Patricia Gales passed away on August 5, so was unable to say goodbye to her in person.
When she returned to Australia she wanted to do something to farewell her "Nan" but also to thank the staff at Port Kembla Hospital palliative care unit who had aided and comforted her in the last weeks of her life.
"My parents told me how the palliative care unit doesn't get much funding," she said.
"It's just not fair to the people who work there.
"I decided to do something to help them."
She has organised a fund-raising event tomorrow to be held in the car park of the Albion Park Hotel, with all proceeds going to the palliative care unit.
The event starts at noon and will feature five bands, a jumping castle, bake sale, chocolate wheel, clothing sales and raffles.
"For the last days of your life you want to be as comfortable as you can in a facility that is equipped to cater for all of your needs," Ms Clough said.
"It's obviously a hard time for everyone who has to go in there and the ladies are so nice.
"My grandad said today that they are angels in blue, that they are absolutely beautiful, beautiful people and every one of them deserves a medal for what they do.
"They look after not only the patients but the families going through the grief."
