To improve the lives of adults suffering from a life-threatening illness through a non-medical, palliative approach. We strive to provide hope and encouragement to patients and their families by offering a therapeutic break from the daily stress and strain that accompanies the illness. By fulfilling wish trips, we hope to create lasting memories that may enhance their quality of life.
