Thank you all for helping make this a successful event this year



 

Honor Flight is a national organization whose mission is to send any WWII veteran on a three-day trip to Washington D.C. to visit the National WWII Memorial - at no cost.  The trip includes airfare, transportation, meals and lodging plus a "Guardian" to watch over them.  The trip will give each veteran the opportunity to feel the impact of their service as well as our nation's gratitude.

The group has chartered a USAir flight to accommodate 75 veterans from the Tucson area, including 13 from Green Valley and Sahuarita.

HONOR FLIGHT!

Proud to be a part of this! Twilight Wish Foundation is a sponsor with Honor Flight now and will have our logo on the trailer that is going to Iowa for this event! Good luck everyone and Yeah for our WWII veterans!

Please take a moment to read this letter to Aaron. This is regarding Honor Flight in which we sponsored a veteran to go on. There are still veterans on the list that are in need of donations to get on this next flight please ...let me know if you can donate to this great cause, you can donate through Twilight Wish and I will get it to them or I can set you up with Aaron and make it happen. This is what we want to see our WWII veterans accomplish; this is what TWF is about making wishes come true and this is a big wish and something we really support. Thanks everyone! Lisa and Rose

UPDATES:

Gregory gets his bike wish granted!

Gregory Neas:  He was a Rn and a veteran of the Army.  He has a beat up car
and really wanted to get exercise and take little trips about town so he
really wanted a bike and a bike lock.    Rose told him that we were just
going to interview him that day then we surprised him with the bike and lock
that I got him.  It was the best thing ever to him.  He was very teary eyed
and thrilled about the color of the bike and the great fit.  I was so
excited doing this wish as I am a cyclist.  I got him the biggest bike you
can get a 29 inch blue mountain bike as he was a 6'2 man.

THE GIFT OF HEARING:

JUAN A, 80, A RESIDENT OF TUCSON HAD HIS WISH FOR A NEW HEARING AID GRANTED. THANKS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA HEARING CLINIC AND THE ARIZONA CHAPTER OF TWILIGHT WISH FOUNDATION. JUAN WORKED HARD THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE AS A FARMER, IN CONSTRUCTION, AS LETTUCE PICKER AND IN A PACKING COMPANY. ALTHOUGH JUAN LOST HIS RIGHT HAND IN AN ACCIDENT WORKING FOR THE PACKING COMPANY IN 1989, HE STILL PLAYS THE GUITAR AND SINGS AND PLAYS FOR HIS CHURCH. HIS INSURANCE DID NOT COVER THE COST OF THE HEARING AID AND JUAN COULD NOT AFFORD IT ON HIS LIMITED INCOME. HE STRUGGLED TO TAKE PART IN CONVERSATIONS AND WISHED VERY MUCH TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE VOICES OF HIS 29 GRANDCHILDREN AND SEVEN GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN. HIS WISH CAME TRUE ON FEBRUARY 12, 2013 WHEN HE RECEIVED HIS NEW HEARING AID!

IN LOVING MEMORY OF RITA MARTIN:

RITA WAS SADLY DIAGNOSED WITH TERMINAL CANCER THIS PAST JUNE. THE DOCTORS CALLED HER SON AND TOLD HIM SHE ONLY HAD A FEW DAYS TO LIVE, SO WHEN HE CAME TO TUCSON HE CLEARED OUT HER APARTMENT AND GAVE ALL OF HER POSSESSIONS AWAY. RITA WISHED FOR A RECLINER, FLOOR LAMP AND CURLERS FOR HER HAIR. THROUGH THE PARTNERSHIP AND GENEROUS HELP OF DESERT SKIES METHODIST CHURCH AND TONI MILLER, HER WISHES WERE MADE POSSIBLE.

UNFORTUNATELY, RITA LOST HER BATTLE WITH CANCER THIS PAST JANUARY AND SHE NOW JOINS MANY OTHER TWF ANGELS WHO WATCH OVER US AND HELP US CONTINUE THIS GREAT WORK.
