She isn't asking for a lot? What is wrong with the other three people moving in with her? Does anyone work? Hey, we would ALL love a big, three bedroom home with heated 2 car garage, all our bills paid and money to live on. My husband and I are both Veterans, living in a small, 1 bedroom apartment and live very carefully on our social security. He has been battling cancer of one sort or another for ten years. The leukemia has returned and he has about 2 months to live.

I am totally disabled but I keep on with caring for him.

I assume your mother is terminal? What will happen to the house when she departs? And you want ALL your bills paid? Why yours? Why not just your mother's??

Hi! I don't know if you will be able to help me or not or if you could direct me to a foundation that can help. The reason I'm writing today is because my stepdad will be 82 year's old on March 21st, a few weeks ago he had a Pet scan and he was told he now has Stage 4 cancer in his liver; a few months prior to this we were happy because the cancer they found in his lungs was gone after his treatment of Chemo, after his last Chemo treatment we didn't think he was going to recover from the treatment, we found out that his main value to his heart is closing up they adjusted his meds and he surprised usall, started doing good, then POW, Stage 4 liver cancer, they are giving him treatment to boost immune system,he goes for second treatment before his birthday, his heart doctor told him go enjoy life. His biggest dream was to go to the Grand Canyon and take my mom, about 5 years ago my mother was stricten with Rheumatoid arthritis and her hand started crippling up, but it doesn't stop her from doing everything for my stepdad, she doesn't drive because she was stricten with panic disorder after becoming very Ill when I was a teenager, she has been trying to find a way to get to full fill my stepdad dream, so much so she willing to get on a airplane which she has always been scared of. The problem with that is, they can't drive, would need wheelchairs for both, my stepdad has Oxygen for COPD, we don't have anyone to take them there. They only need assistance getting there and some one to take them places while they are there, and get them back home. Our wish is that there is a organization to could provide them with chaffer assistance and assist them getting around while visiting the Grand Canyon, can you please help me or know if there is a organization that can accommodate them. Sincerely just wanting to help my stepdad complete his bucket list and dream. Sharon Z

Hell I need the same things! A home of my own, a conversion van and someone to drive it. I'll probably never get any of those things so choosing a different wish is the next best answer. If only there were organizations that dealt with non-terminal or cancer free adults that are just physically disabled and wheelchair bound. I've looked and looked and there's maybe one on all of the internet. I wish I had the energy, I'd start one myself. Good luck!

I was diagnosed with and have treatment for adenocarcinoma of the nasopharynx.... since the diagnosis we got married and I no longer work. We never had a honeymoon( had planned on Hawaii but medical bills and loss of income have put that off) and I am at a loss of words for how much cancer had change do our lives....
if I were to ask for a wish I would ask for flooring.... we were told I was most likely allergic to the carpet in our house (being misdiagnosed as having severe allergies) and we now have cement floors. My dream would be to have hardwood throughout the house since it is a mishmash of area rugs.... which just reminds me of the misdiagnos. Is there somewhere I can apply for such a wish? Live in Florida.

We do not know any resources that will give someone a free house and a free van, sorry. they will sometimes pay for a trip for terminal patients that have less than a year to live. What you are hoping for is expensive and there are a lot of terminal people that have wishes, too. If a wish foundation would give you and your son all that you ask for, they would run short of money for other peoples wishes. I am so sorry he has had such a difficult life, we have never heard of anyplace giving anyone a free house and van, sorry.

looking for a wish foundation that would consider giving a special adult a wish to live the rest of his life with his mom in a nice three bedroom home so his family could come and visit and he loves to swim. He was sexually molested by his staff in a group home I just got him out of. He is now in a new home, but how wonderful it would be (I his mom is near retirement age) if I could bring him home, get staff to come in to help me care for him, have a van handicapped equipped for wheel chair so I could better take him places....He needs me now more than ever.....I only have a small 2 bedroom that I rent....My son needs so much more...but how?

on internet, type in "wishes for adult cancer patients". you will see several listings. I am not sure how many people these places will pay for to go to Disney; probably just the cancer patient and spouse, they have a lot of requests for money for trips and are unable to pay for lots of people , to try to make sure other cancer patients get their wishes too. I am so sorry your friend has been so sick for so long.

I have just undergone my crainiotomy. My dream is to fund a lawncare business for myself and my teenage boys to run. Unfortunately I am lacking the funding to buy the necessary hardware needed to get going. $30,000 is more than enough to get started. ... I have an active checking account and full recognition will be acknowledged to those parties that assist in my cause. Thank you and God bless!
