Dale C., 70, Erie, PA

We are excited that a very generous donor will make Dale's wish come true!  He will receive his new bed soon!

Dale was a single father who raised his son after the death of his wife. He also cared for his elderly uncle before he passed.  He suffers from chronic back pain and his doctor recommends he get adjustable bed to make sleeping easier.  He lives on a limited income and cannot afford to buy or save for one himself. He does not own a bed and currently sleeps on his couch.

She also volunteered as a Girl Scout troop leader and at the S.P.C.A.  She and her husband would love to attend their nephew's wedding in April in California.  It would be extra special because he is getting married on the same day as they did 40 years ago!

William Z., 72, Cottage Grove, WI

William's wish has come true!

William is an Army veteran who is a hospice patient. He enjoys time with his family, but due to his medical and financial limitations he is rarely able to have all of his daughters and grandchildren together.  He wishes to enjoy the time he has left and would like to go with his family to Evergreen Lodge.  He loves nature and wildlife and was an avid outdoors man. This trip would be a celebration for his birthday and his 38th wedding anniversary with his wife.



Carol R., Telford, PA

We received a generous donation and Carol's wish has been granted!

Carol was a probation officer and taught Sunday school at her local church. She also provided emotional and care giving support to her niece after her husband left her to raise three children.  With her support, her niece was able to graduate from college and become a teacher. During this time, Carol became very close with her niece's children. The oldest is now graduating from nursing school and the youngest is graduating from high school.  They live in Nevada and Carol's wish is to see them both graduate.  Due to her limited income, she can not afford the extra expense of this trip.
