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. Meet Doris. She is a sweet lil lady who wishes to go to Kentucky for a reunion this August. We are very excited to make this wish come true for a very deserving senior in our community!!! -BED WISH: TWF grated a request for a new bed.. she is now having sweet dreams !!! -We granted a well deserving Veteran and RN a wish for a new bicycle. Now he can ride around town, save some gas and get some exercise !! -AARP was gracious enough to donate for an Ice Cream Social at Devon Gables earlier this month. It was a BIG HIT!! We are very excited to share with you updates on Miss. Char's wish. She is having an amazing time in Iowa right now with her precious grandchildren and family. Thank you for all of your support!!!

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.
