As you guys may know, I am a big supporter of Dream Foundation, an amazing charity that grants wishes to terminally ill people. I was looking through their website the other day and reading all the stories about the dreams they have fulfilled over the years, and I wanted to post this story on my blog to share with you all. The work that the staff at Dream Foundation do is truly inspiring!!! Here is Garnetta’s story…
Garnetta is an 83 year old woman losing her battle with cancer. Despite her diagnosis, Garnetta continues with her positive attitude and appreciation for life. She has always had a love for country music and a dream of seeing her idol, Loretta Lynn, in concert. In September of 2010, Garnetta’s dream came true.
The Dream Foundation provided Garnetta and her family with tickets to the concert and a hotel room for them to stay in after the show. Garnetta was able to meet and take pictures with Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter Megan and brother Herman. The concert was spectacular and while in town, Garnetta was able to tour Loretta Lynn’s Ranch which was an amazing experience for such a lifelong fan.
“The Dream Foundation is a wonderful organization, and me and my family will be grateful to you for the rest of our lives. You are such an extraordinary organization to grant dreams for each individual to make their life just a little more special for just a little while. That means A LOT! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.” -Barnett Family
