Granting Veteran’s Last Wishes
The Dream Foundation, the national dream-granting organization for terminally ill adults, has launched a new nationwide sub-program Dreams for Veterans to give back to terminally ill veterans and their families through the fulfillment of a final dream.
Dream Foundation Executive Director Kisa Heyer says “Dreams for Veterans provides the invaluable opportunity to honor veterans’ service while engaging, honoring, and appreciating their families and communities.”
Dreams for Veterans recipients are U.S. military veterans 18 years or older with a life expectancy of 12 months or less.
