Carter’s Dream – August 4, 2009
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 before. Carter and his family have to travel for three and a half hours once a month for treatment. To occupy him while traveling and spending time in hospital he asked for a Nintendo DS. To make his life at home a little less painful and a lot more fun SCDF also presented him with a bright red, ride-on Corvette. We will never forget the tears in both his mom’s and dad’s eyes as we unveiled that red Corvette. Carter’s mouth dropped as he stared in amazement and wasted no time climbing into the seat.
