Hello, I was wondering if the dream foundation grants wishes for a final family vacation? Yesterday we found out my father's glioblastoma has returned. He is going to start losing his memory soon and I wanted to give him a final day on the beach with the family.

Hi, I am in End Stage Renal Failure and have stomach cancer (Not treatable) I would love to go on a honeymoon with my husband (Married 31 years) to Disney world in Orlando. But money will not allow us to even go out to dinner(I am only able to swallow smoothies now, stomach will not tolerate whole food) but after all these years I would love to make finals memories with this awesome man. Dr. told me to go home and try to enjoy at least a year. My heart is broken and I dread each day because it could be the last. Do you know of any help for me.

Nana, We are over 65 and just learned my husband has pulmonary fibrosis and we also live in Florida. He has a brother (dying of cancer) and a sister that he has never met...they live in Texas. I would love to have him meet his brother and sister before any of them die...it's so difficult to travel anymore, it will take a lot of support/resources...if you have anything to share, from your experience, please reply....God Bless you! Gail

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!
