Dream Foundation surprises cancer patient with Smoky Mountains trip
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) –
For the past 20 years an organization called the Dream Foundation has been granting wishes for adults fighting cancer and they made another dream come true for a local woman.
Melanie Gordon thought she was coming in for chemotherapy at Trinity Medical Center but instead she walked in to see the room is full of her family.
“I don’t like surprises or attention. I’m like, ‘Oh no,'” said Gordon.
She’s always wanted to stay in a cabin in Gatlinburg, Tennessee with her family and she got that wish granted by the Dream Foundation.
“It’s very emotional for me. To have all of my family in one spot, at one time is also a blessing,” said Gordon.
The surprise trip brought many to tears.
