Cancer patient gets final wish for Mother’s Day

MESA, Ariz. –

A valley woman’s final wish was to have her entire family together for four days over Mother’s Day weekend.

Thanks to an organization called the Dream Foundation, her wish came true.

May 11 could be Heidi Markus’ last Mother’s Day.

The 54-year-old has colon cancer and her prognosis isn’t a good one.

“Recently the doctor told me that I had less than a year, actually he gave me six months,” said Heidi Markus.
