Emma S., Holland, PA

Emma and her husband have been married for 35 years.  She was recently moved to a full time nursing facility and does not get to go out because she needs an aide to help her.  The transition has been hard on them both and her husband visits her daily. Her nominator feels she would benefit greatly by spending a night away from the facility with her husband.  She would love see a show in Philadelphia, enjoy a nice dinner and stay overnight in the city.  We need to raise $1,000 to cover the accommodations, travel and a nursing aide for the trip.  Please donate to make Emma's wish come true!


Jeannie H., 69, Birmingham, AL

Jeannie is a recent widow who has been diagnosed with lung cancer.  She volunteers with her church and has supported her family whenever they needed extra help.  Her heater recently broke and she cannot afford to replace it on her fixed income.  We need to raise $2,500 to grant this simple wish needed during this very cold winter.

Frances T., 76, Corona, CA

Thanks to some very generous donors, Frances' wish will soon come true!

Frances is a sweet and loving person who is battling Stage 4 lung cancer.  Despite her health problems, her outlook is positive but a little getaway would greatly lift her spirits.  She has always wanted to stay and dine on the legendary Queen Mary.  It is a historic ocean liner that is permanently docked in Long Beach, CA. 



Jean S., Telford, PA, 82 

We are excited to say that Jean will soon have her new hearing aids!  Thank you to all who donated!

Jean worked as a cleaning woman for residents at a long term care facility for many years.  She wold go above and beyond for them by running errands for them at no cost.  She has also gone above and beyond for many family members over the years. She supported her nephew when he returned from serving in Iraq and suffered from PTSD, she housed her grand niece while she was student teaching and provided free childcare for her son when he was in need.

Jean suffered from encephalitis when she was very young which cause hearing loss.  She now needs specialized hearing aids that she cannot afford.
