    I am trying to contact a foundation who makes wishes come true for a 49 year woman who is stage 4 breast cancer. She has survive 6 years and knows she has little time left. She lost her mother after a 6 and half year of fighting cancer only recently. She lives in Stockbridge,Ga with her husband. Most of his income goes to her cemo and other medical needs. They are barely surviving on their income. They couldn’t have children in their 20 years of marriage. Her only wish is to spend Christmas at Disney World before she dies. I am not, nor are any of her friends or brothers and sister able to make this happen. Is there anyone out there who can help. This is probably her last Christmas since the cancer is in her bones, lungs and esphugas. Please if you can direct me send me an email
    at ri_cindy@hotmail.com. May the Lord bless you.
