Dream Team presents Disney World trip for woman fighting cancer

SALEM – If anybody asked Angela Akers what she would be doing this week while on a break from her latest round of chemotherapy, she would say, “I’m going to Disney World!”

The free trip arranged by the Dream Foundation is a bright light for the 40-year-old Salem resident who is fighting a rare lung cancer for which doctors say there is no cure.

The trip to Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios for Akers and her mom, Gay Littrell, came about through the efforts of Akers’ pharmacist and a pharmaceutical representative. This week’s trip is the first time for both Akers and Littrell to visit those Florida attractions.
