Dreams Can Come True

Dreamer Stories | In the News | May 12, 2017

If you ask Calvin Lagstrom, he would tell you some of his fondest memories are of time spent with family at Brennan Beach on Lake Ontario. The Cicero resident’s face lights up when the beach comes up in conversation. Lagstrom couldn’t help but tell those beach stories to his healthcare team from Hospice of Central New York. That sparked the social worker on the team to apply for a grant from the Dream Foundation. This non-profit organization is based in California and serves terminally ill adults and their families by providing end-of-life dreams that offer inspiration, comfort and closure.

The Lagstrom application was accepted and the Lagstrom Family was overwhelmed by the news. Lina Lazore of Genentech, a company which represents the Dream Foundation in Upstate New York, stopped by the Lagstrom home on a very rainy Friday with the good news. The Hospice Team was there to share in the excitement as well. Plans for another great family weekend were mapped out and Calvin can’t wait to tell his newest beach story.
