WEYMOUTH – Donny Jo Prevost never expected to see his self-portrait hanging in the Museum of Fine Arts, but there it was, along with nine of his other paintings. The experience was surreal, like a dream – except that it was a dream come true.
Prevost, 63, the former lead singer for a popular local band, is the first artist to exhibit at the MFA through The Dream Foundation, which grants wishes to adults with terminal illnesses.
Earlier this week, he and his wife, Theresa, saw the exhibit, titled Donny Jo Prevost, in the Drucker Family Pavilion of the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art.
Robin Scoins is diagnosed with a terminal lung condition. She was just granted her dream of taking her three children to Disneyland for one final family trip.
FORT COLLINS – Robin Scoins doesn’t much time left with her kids. So, she wanted to make the most of the time she has left.
“It could be three to six months, three to nine months, a year,” Scoins said. “Yeah, I’m kind of living on borrowed time.”
SOMERSWORTH, N.H. (MyFoxBoston.com) — A Somersworth, New Hampshire woman was granted her dying wish Thursday when her best friend showed up on her doorstep after being apart for 20 years.
Fifty year old Stephanie Defalco was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in June of 2012. Just last month, her condition worsened and she was given one to three months to live. That was reduced to one to three days last weekend when Defalco took a turn for the worse. That’s when she made one request; to see her long lost friend, Ann Hollenbeck.
The two met as neighbors in 1983 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and made an instant connection. They were inseparable until circumstances brought Hollenbeck to Indiana and the two lost touch. Neither are computer savvy so social media was not an option for staying in touch. They were reunited Thursday though, thanks to Defalco’s three kids who tracked Hollenbeck down and coordinated with the Dream Foundation to get her back out to N.H.
MESA, Ariz. — A Mesa man who is battling cancer is about to have the dream of his life fulfilled.
Robert Gordon, 58, was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Doctors have given him 12 months or less to live.
Dream Foundation, a nationwide wish-granting organization, heard about his plight and that his dream of visiting Disneyland has never been fulfilled, due to financial constraints.
The foundation has changed that.
