In the News | March 23, 2017

Many people have a bucket list.

For lung cancer patient Afena Walker, that list included taking a trip to New Orleans with her daughter, Heather.

Thanks to the Dream Foundation, with help from Margaret Mary Health, Walker’s dream recently became a reality.

Kari Ann Renekamp, patient support coordinator at Margaret Mary’s Cancer Center said during one of Walker’s chemotherapy treatments, Walker told her she always dreamt of going to New Orleans but was concerned about the expense.

That’s when Rennekamp suggested they submit her wish to the Dream Foundation.
