Local cancer patient to get dream vacation at Disney World

logoSAN ANTONIO — The Dream Foundation is helping a terminal cancer patient fulfill her dream of going to Disney world with her kids and grandkids.

Veronica Velasquez has stage four sarcoma, a rare cancer that grows in bones, muscles and nerves. She has always dreamed of going to Disney World with her family.

The Dream Foundation donated money for her trip and held a presentation Tuesday at the Cancer Care Centers of South Texas. Staff there also wore Mickey Mouse ears to celebrate her trip.

Veronica says it’s a way to give back to her children and grandchildren who have been taking very good care of her during treatments.

“If I come out from chemo real ill, they’ll ask if I need a glass of water,” explained Veronica. “If I need food, they are just constantly taking care of me.”

Veronica is the first San Antonio Dream Foundation honoree this year. (Read more)
