Dream brings ‘light’ to ill woman
Tamara Wilson had a simple wish: “To see the fireflies.”
The 67-year-old Roseville resident has spent the last year — following her terminal diagnosis of renal cell cancer — embracing life with a trip to Yosemite, fun holiday celebrations and daily phone conversations with family members.
Wilson took inspiration from Tim McGraw’s song, “Live Like You Were Dying.”
Doctors have now given her a few months to live, as she battles this type of kidney cancer. But for all her exploits, her ultimate dream remained out of reach until recently.
