Beula C., 82, Idaho Falls, ID

Beula Chesak, a resident of Idaho Falls Care and Rehabilitation Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho, had her wish to spend the day with sheep granted, thanks to a partnership between Twilight Wish and SunBridge Healthcare.  Chesak, 82, grew up around animals, herding sheep with her sister when they were young girls.  Her wish was to be around a herd of sheep and pet them, just one more time.  Her poignant wish came true on October 20, 2011 when Chesak visited a local family who raise sheep on their property.  Chesak was accompanied by her husband, daughter and sister.  Special thanks to the Cole family for their generosity and kindness in helping to grant this wish.

Betty L., 92, Hayden, ID

Betty, a retired health store and restaurant owner, wished for hearing aids to improve communication with her daughter. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of Audiology Research Associates in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Betty’s wish was granted by the Pacific Northwest Chapter on January 28, 2011. Betty cares for her daughter, 67, who has Parkinson's Disease, and son-in-law, 76, who has suffered two strokes. Betty still drives and does all the cooking and shopping for the family despite suffering with diabetes and breaking a hip a year ago. She is very grateful for her new hearing aids which now enable her to avoid family miscommunications.
