Veterans Journal: Dream Foundation Grants Wishes for Terminally Ill Vets
Dreams for Veterans, a program of the Dream Foundation started in 2014, gives back to terminally ill veterans and their families through the fulfillment of a final dream. Dream recipients are U.S. military veterans 18 and over with a life expectancy of 12 months or less.
The only national dream-granting organization for adults, Dream Foundation enhances the quality of life for individuals and their families battling life-threatening illness. Dreams range from basic needs, such as a working stove, to bedside reunions and meaningful experiences with children and loved ones.
Founded in 1994, Dream Foundation grants more than 2,500 final wishes each year and relies on a network of volunteers, sponsors and individual donors. CKE Restaurants Holdings Inc., Southwest Airlines and entrepreneur and philanthropist John Paul DeJoria are founding sponsors of this program.
