Dolores has received news that her wish will be granted!  Thank you to a generous donor and our Butler County Chapter for making her wish come true!

Dolores lives alone and strives daily to be as independent as possible so she can remain in her home.

Dorothy R., 73, Oak Park, IL

Dorothy is a lifelong Chicago Bulls fan!  After a  serious illness and hospitalization, she is facing a long recovery.  She has always been the person who takes care of others and is feeling depressed because she is no longer able to do so.  Her daughter, who submitted the wish, feels that a visit from a Chicago Bulls player or analyst, Stacey King, would lift her spirits and aid in her recovery!
