Family will always be there. And Wanda has a big family!

Earlier this year, Wanda was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma lung cancer. It’s been her wish to spend uninterrupted time with her entire family…nearly 40 people! Her family gets together for most Holidays every year, but between opening Christmas presents, football games with cousins and brothers and sisters laughing and chatting, Wanda doesn’t always get to spend quality time with her 4 kids, 24 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren!

Wanda’s daughter, Kellie, nominated her mom to fulfill her dream by Dreamweaver Foundation by saying, “. . . she deserves the world.” Kellie thought her mom would want to travel maybe to a warm beach, relaxing by dipping her toes in the sand or to see a Broadway show in New York City, but Wanda had another dream in mind; spending a weekend with her favorite people, doing her favorite activity, swimming!

Kellie helped Ashley, Dreamweaver Foundation Dream Coordinator, find the perfect indoor waterpark for Wanda’s Dream, Bridges Bay Resort in Okoboji, Iowa. Wanda and family spent three days and two nights in adjoining condo rooms. The time together and memories created will be cherished for a long time.

Kellie said, “It was good! Mom had a lot of fun and enjoyed being with the family. . . Everyone is so appreciative to have had this time with mom, I cannot thank you all enough!!!

Thank you Bridges Bay for helping Dreamweaver Foundation fulfill Wanda’s Dream!
