Our First Wish Granted

In June of 2014, we rolled out this program and within a few weeks, we granted our first wish. An elderly gentleman, who had gone to live with his daughter as he lived out his final years, wanted to celebrate his last birthday at the rustic cabin that was his childhood home. Our “Wish Team” arranged for a medical transportation company to take him to and from the event as well as provide all the supplies for a memorable 89th birthday. We connected with that family in a totally new way and with this, “A Simple Wish” was off and running.
