Dreams Come True

18 June 2019

 

Dreams Come True is a national UK based children’s charity that enriches the lives of children and young adults with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses. We help children and young adults from the age of 2 to 21 years old.

The types of dreams we grant are worldwide holidays, UK holidays, one off experiences, meet and greets and equipment. Fulfilling a dream provides a positive focus, empowering both the child and their family with new enthusiasm and strength to deal with ongoing daily struggles of illness, gruelling hospital treatments and sometimes sad loss.

 

A Dream Fulfilled

13 year old Libby has a number of health conditions including epilepsy, autism, and hyper mobility. She also has rapidly deteriorating eyesight and uses a nimbo walker for stability and to ease leg pain. Her dream was simple, to meet a real unicorn and have a fairy party as she had never had a party before. Libby’s Mum wrote, “Michelle, our Dreams Co-ordinator, managed to find a Fairy marquee tent complete with a real Fairy entertainer, a unicorn cake as well as a real unicorn. Being able to step away from the hospital appointments and the tough times was a dream come true for me as well. So from the bottom of our hearts Thank you.”
