Every person connected to Dream Foundation shares one experience: our hearts have all been touched by our Dream recipients. Their stories have moved us, and in their faces we have seen the impact of Dreams fulfilled. Our mission is to provide inspiration, comfort and closure, but it is our Dream recipients and their families who inspire us to accomplish that mission, and to continue to serve more Dreams.
Coping with terminal illness takes a toll – physically, emotionally and financially – not only on the patient, but on their family, friends and caregivers. Dreams offer psychosocial and emotional support that is tailored to terminally-ill adults and those around them.
The Dreams we fulfill are as diverse as Dream recipients themselves, but our goal in every case is the same. We offer the support and compassion that is most needed in that situation. Over 30 percent of Dreams focus on enhancing quality of life, by providing items like a computer or dentures. Such purchases may seem simple, but their impact can be enormous.
Dream Foundation served more than 3,173 Dreams nationwide last year, passing the milestone of our 30,000th Dream. With your continued support, we will be able to provide many more Dreams and continue helping to enrich the lives of those with terminal illness and their families, who will carry these memories with them for years to come.
