Honoring Wishes

On occasion,  we hear about a wish and do our best to fulfill them. Our 90 year young client and her volunteer had discussed how much they both would love to ride in a helicopter. After a call to DBS Helicopter, the generosity of  Pilot Doug Sheffer and Carbondale resident Chuck Cole allowed these women the ride of a lifetime and the experience of a dream come true. Our heartfelt thanks to all those involved in planning the spectacular adventure on June 1, 2012.

Another dream we helped make come true was for a young boy named Zander. His grandfather had passed away from cancer before the holidays a couple of years ago. Zander’s Christmas wish was to go fishing with his grandfather, but after his passing, we knew this would not be possible. Instead, we had a friend dress up as Santa. This gentleman was able to acquire a fishing pole from a local business. We then surprised this little boy with a fishing pole, delivered by Santa himself, and the opportunity for them to go fishing in a near by stream. Zander was so excited to learn how to fish, and even more excited when he caught one!
