does anyone know of a last wish organization for cancer patients March 23, 2006 1:18 PM

I am wondering if anyone knows of an organization that will help grant a person dyeing from cancer a last wish.

As you all know my sister is dyeing from breast cancer that is in stage 4 and has now moved to her menigies. Fluid that surrounds her brain. The doctors have her stage as end stage breast cancer.

She lived in Sevirville Tennesee for several years and never got to go to dollyland in the great smokey mountains. It was only about 15 minutes from her home. Unfortunatly she could never afford to go.

Her wish is to go to  dollyland and ride dollys train to some haunted mansion and then visit the cherokee indian reservation Before she passes.

She says she can make the trip if we take our time and let her rest. She has a wheelchair now so that will help tremendously.

The problem is  still money. Tickets are 65.00 each not includeing gas from ohio to tennesee and hotel cost. Plus of course food ect.....

So I was curious if anyone knows of a group that would help her make this trip. Thanks for any info. Wilma

Make a Wish... March 23, 2006 4:19 PM

Make a Wish is for children usually.  I'm sure Dolly would grant your sister her entrance fee at least and maybe more.  I think if you write to her it could happen.  She seems like a very giving person.  Are they open now? 

It is so difficult to intervene at this stage of the challenge.  Where are you in Ohio?  There are some very good doctors here.  Nutrient infusion in addition to her current therapies would be better to fight this.   A web site to research.                                      and Robert F.

my sister March 23, 2006 6:35 PM

We live in Ohio, She has an excellent doctor, Unfortunatly the cancer is progressing rapidly and she is not responding to treatments. So She quit taking them, At first they were working great but then she developed the Bone lesions while on the chemo.  They started her on a new chemo and the carcinoma menegitis appeared, she tried radiation and it only made her bald and sick, So she decided she was done with treatments. A hard decision to accept but hers to make.  Dollys theme park opens next month, And I need to find out how I can get her there before  Shes not able to go. So whisper a prayer for us. Thanks wilma

Make A Wish Foundation may help...also mostly for children.

My sincerest thoughts are with you and your family...I lost my mother to brain cancer and my niece to a form of blood cancer. (Make A Wish was there for my niece)
