Every child deserves the chance to have their dreams come true. Unfortunately there are many children who suffer from critical illnesses and do not get the chance to grow and realize these dreams.

Here are the stories of the dreams we have made come true so far…


Carter’s Dream: #1

The value of this charity and the true image of what it will do became clear on August 4, 2009 when we made the dream of a child come true for the very first time. We received an application from the parents of three year old Carter who was diagnosed with leukemia just over a year ago.
