Doris P., Raleigh, NC

Doris Powell celebrated her birthday by having her wish to do something special this year granted.  Doris, a resident of Spring Arbor of Raleigh Residential Assisted Living, suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS).  Prior to being diagnosed with MS, this mother of two and grandmother of four worked as a teller for a local bank.  Doris is an integral part of the Spring Arbor community and is well known for her infectious smile, positive attitude and colorful outfits!  Her wish was to get her hair and nails done, get dressed up and ride in a limo to a birthday dinner with friends at her favorite restaurant.  Thanks to several generous donors, her wish was granted on her birthday, Friday, December 12, 2014, when she and her friends traveled via limo to Red Lobster where they enjoyed a delicious dinner together.
