The Children's Dream Fund was founded in 1981 with the single purpose of fulfilling dreams for children ages 3-18 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and who live in West Central Florida. Dreams are referred to us by doctors, nurses, Child Life and Social Workers, friends, families and other patients.
Dreams vary as much as the personalities of the children we serve. They may involve meeting a celebrity, a trip, or a gift such as a computer or playground, or our most-requested dream, a week at the Give Kids the World Village, which enables a child to visit all of the Disney-area theme parks. No dream has been refused, except those involving motorized vehicles and firearms.
I have family and friends who live down in Florida and have spoken very highly of this organization. The organization has the power to grant children with cancer a dream of their desire. Christmas is almost around the corner, a great time to share love and charity from our hearts.
