KC woman in hospice care goes on motorcycle ride, gets tattoo through ‘Gift of a Day’ program


GLADSTONE, Mo. -- A woman in hospice care had the kind of day she thought she could only dream of Friday, thanks to a program called 'Gift of a Day' through Crossroads Hospice.

Carol Bocklett and her partner are avid motorcycle riders.  When asked to describe her perfect day, Carol Bocklett said it would include a final motorcycle ride and a tattoo.

Worth Harley-Davidson helped create Carol's perfect day. They arranged to use a Harley Davidson with a side car since Carol is now too weak to ride on back.  They drove to KC Ink for the new tattoo.

Photojournalist Jon Haiduk was there for Carol's adventure as the wind blew her face, and as she cherished her gift of a day.
