Wish Granted: Volga Man Heading to Daytona 500

VOLGA — What if you were terminally ill and you had one last wish?
Barbour County cancer patient John Bennett is getting that one last wish, thanks to the Dream Foundation. He has terminal cancer and functions under hospice care at his Volga home he shares with wife Cyrena.

“I have no idea how much longer I have left. I just sit each day and worry when the next day will be,” he said.

“In the past year and a half I’ve seen him go through a lot that no woman should have to see her husband go through,” Cyrena said.

But Monday, the couple got a sweet Valentine from volunteers for the Dream Foundation: they’re sending the Bennetts on an all-access VIP trip to the Daytona 500, all for one reason.
