Bucket List


Auckland-based cancer sufferer Lisa Knapman-Smith, 29, and nine-year-old daughter Nikita take a paraflight thanks to the generosity of Queenstown businesses.

Knapman-Smith, who has terminal cancer and has lost two children prematurely, was treated to a free weekend of adventure when Jag Air pilot Adam Butcher heard about her story – she brought along husband Ian, Nikita and one-year-old son Cort.

He mustered donations from tour and adventure operators Central Ridge Boutique Hotel, Jucy Rentals and
Air New Zealand.
