My husband was diagnosed with Stage IIII Advanced Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma. As of this week, he has been diagnosed as terminal with 1 year or less to live. I was wondering if anyone knows any good wish granting services that are still around. We are located in California. Fairy God Mother seems to be gone now and I am not sure who else to go to.

Thank you!

hi,friendshelpingfriends has not come back on this site for years. You would need to ask someone that works at a wish granting foundation for adults,because we are unable to answer your questions. One such site I found is The Dream Foundation.Their phone number is 1-888-437-3267.If you want to check out more places, there are several others listed on the internet,just type in make-a-wish for adults. you will then see a list of organizations that might be able to help.
