We are thrilled to tell you about a local non-profit organization that is doing great things for the Florida community!
Infinite Wishes Foundation.org helps adults with life threatening illnesses and their families fulfill their dreams. The organization provides in-state wish trips to help de-stress and escape from the daily burdens that accompany terminal illness. Wish trips can range from a special dinner to a two night stay at a Florida destination within the IWF partnership network.
The organization is in memory of Joan, who developed stage 4 lung cancer at the age of 53. Joan's lifelong dream was to swim with dolphins and thanks to her friends and family, her wish came true mere months before she lost her battle with cancer.
Realizing there were countless other Floridians and their family who could benefit from the enhanced quality of life and lasting memories of wish trips, Joan's friends and family created Infinite Wishes Foundation. The foundation goal is to as many wish trips as possible to ill adults who may not be able to otherwise afford it. "Through Joan's legacy we can help make dreams come true." The non-profit recognizes how important it is for those living with terminal illnesses to enjoy life 'outside their disease.' Wish trips and "precious moments spent together can add hope and strength as they face their difficult treatments. "
All foundation recipients are year-round Florida residents aged 18-65 who suffer from a terminal illness and meet certain financial and medical requirements. Infinite Wishes Foundation is based near Rotator Rod headquarters in Sarasota, Florida.
