The WHO House continues to be created and defined. We look forward to the wonderful things we will be able to do for our local community and those currently undergoing Cancer Treatment, Survivors, Spouses, Children, and Family & Friends. We have a building and meeting space designated for people to come together and share their experiences and help others as they go through their own journey.
We are also excited to create “Who Dreams”! Where we can present someone and their family with a fun wish or dream. There are plenty of tough days dealing with treatments, medical bills, daily living expenses, and the continual emotional roller coaster of daily life. These Dreams grant them a time when they can focus on something fun and just one way we can give back.
If you know someone that is fighting life-threatening cancer and could benefit from a Who Dream, please click the application button below. The application information will be forwarded and you will be contacted by a member of our wish-granting team.
Who Dreams that Came True
Everyone has a Dream, and Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy it! To continue to make these dreams come true, we need support from you. We are always in need of donations, airline miles, time shares, you name it. If we can use it create a wonderful opportunity, please let us know!
Who Dream #2
Alaska Fishing Trip
Who Dream #4
A Cruise with his Wife for John
John Wanted to go on a cruise with his wife that was already planned but almost wasn’t able to sail away because he needed oxygen machines and it would have cost him $2000 + and so he was going to cancel the cruise because he didn’t want to burden his wife with more medical bills after he was gone. We flew into action with the help of our Friends at Valley Medical Center / UW Medicine and they got him fitted with one that was light that he could pull around during the day, and a heavier one that was needed for his sleeping hours. He was able to take that Dream cruise with his wife with no financial worries.
Who Dream #6
Who Dream #7
To meet his favorite super hero Batman was Liam’s dream
Who Dream #8
Local Maple Valley business owner and past Maple Valley Rotary Rotarian John Phillips! In just 4 days Alonzo Mitz (defensive end 86-89) and Norm Johnson, kicker of the Seattle Seahawks, showed up to say “Hello!” and talk field talk with John. Valley Girls and Guys had another special surprise for John the following day, but we got a phone call just hours after leaving the family that John had passed away, still with a smile after having his dream fulfilled, surrounded by his family.
Who Dream #9
Pete wished to take a magical trip to Disneyland with his family.
Unfortunately, due to COVID, this dream has not yet been fulfilled…
Who Dream #10
Jennifer Small had a Disney-Magical Vacation with her family at Disney World! The Small family had already booked their flight and hotel, but we were able to support the family to make their trip extra magical with a limo ride to- and from- the airport, a VIP tour of Disney World parks, custom shirts and more!
Who Dream #11
Toni Turner and her three children created wonderful memories on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii. Thanks to your generous donations, after getting picked up and taken to the airport in a limo, we were able to provide flights for the family (from various parts of the country), hotel and some spending money for the family to enjoy their time together.
Who Dream #12
Christian Lopez is a Maple Valley native. We were excited to fulfill his dream of taking a trip to Kentucky with his wife and 4 kids (ages 6-19) to visit the Ark Encounter and The Creation Museum. The family had an amazing time and shared fun memories at the museums and had wonderful hotel accommodations and some spending money for food and additional activities.
Who Dream #13
Danielle Lowe is a single mother to 4 beautiful children ranging in age from 21 to 4 years old. After receiving a terminal diagnosis, her dream was to make lasting memories with her family, capture those moments to reflect on for years to come, and enjoy one another without worry. The family was gifted a beautiful home for the weekend at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington. We went ahead of the family and surprised each child with special gifts based on their interests and passions, and left the fridge and counters stocked with yummy snacks and a full fridge of food for their weekend adventures. The family was also able to enjoy a delicious family dinner at a local restaurant. Memories were made to last a lifetime for this deserving family.
Who Dream #14
Who Dream#14 is taking place in memory of Tim Spence. He was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was nominated by his loving Aunt, who requested on sending him on his dream vacation to Hawaii as he had never been. Around the same time we received approval from his doctor to take the trip, we found out that unfortunately, Tim had passed away a few days prior. A few days later, we received a follow up call from his Aunt asking if we could send Tim’s mom and sister to Hawaii to spread his ashes and lay him to rest in his dream location.
This dream is currently in process of being fulfilled.
