Carol R., Telford, PA

We received a generous donation and Carol's wish will be 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.

Edna B., 76, Doylestown, PA

Thanks to a wonderful donor, Edna's wish has been granted!

Edna has faced many tragedies in her life.  She cared for her daughter who suffered with Cystic Fibrosis until she passed away at the age of 40.  Her son then died at the age of 41.  Her youngest daughter currently lives with her and suffers from mental illness.

Edna always tried to help others when she could.  When her local creek flooded, she made meals for the people who had to stay in a shelter.  She also babysat her neighbors children for free when they needed help.

She has family in Georgia and would like to move there. She feels that this would not just be better for her, but for her daughter to be close to their family as well. Due to her very limited income, she cannot afford to make the move on her own.
