Enriching a final journey
Santa Barbara, California (CNN) — I first heard of Dream Foundation in 1997 when the charity requested a visit to Graceland for a dream recipient. After the visit, I received a thank-you note and photo of the dreamer in front of the Graceland gates. I was moved by her experience and decided I wanted to get more involved, so I picked up the phone to find out more about the foundation. I was absolutely mesmerized and instantly attached to their unique mission of granting wishes to adults with terminal illnesses.
When I was asked to be an ambassador and spokeswoman for the charity, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. How could I turn down such a great cause? I’ve been honored to travel and represent the organization across the country at special events and corporate meetings, as well as in public service announcements, television and print interviews.
