Here are a few stories of Dreams Come True. Click on each title to be inspired.

 

A Trip to Niagara Falls
READ MORE

Silvana dreamed of enjoying a special weekend away with her family. On Saturday, September 10th, Silvana, her son, and his girlfriend made their first stop at the Toronto Zoo where they enjoyed a sentimental trip that resembled the days when Silvana would take her son as a little boy. Silvana then travelled to Niagara Falls for her second stop, where she and her extended family stayed in beautiful suites at the Fallsview Resort and Casino overlooking the falls before enjoying a decadent meal at the Keg. Silvana’s family is the most important part of her life; they have been tremendous supporters throughout her cancer journey. It was our pleasure helping to create a weekend full of happiness and quality time with those who matter the most.

Part of this dream was made possible through the generous donations of dinner and hotel rooms provided by The Keg and Fallsview Casino Resort.

Nancy's Family Party
READ MORE

Nancy dreamed of throwing a backyard party for her entire family. On August 20th, Nancy was the super host! Her backyard party was complete with an event tent, a catered meal, a cake and cupcakes, and a bouncy castle for the children. Nancy’s favourite colour is orange and she loves flowers, so of course we had to make sure to send some beautiful orange arrangements to help decorate. The entire day was captured by kat baranowski photography so the family can have lasting memories of the dream that came true.

Lindsay's Garden
READ MORE

Lindsay is the mother to three beautiful children who are ages 1, 3, and 5 years old and married to Lucas, whom she met at her sister’s wedding. Lindsay dreamed of building a “memorial garden” in the backyard the farmhouse; complete with beautiful flowers and a play-set area that could be used as a special place for her children and family members to remember her, share stories and laughs, and feel her presence. Lindsay’s dream came true with generous donations from her local community, help from Annette and her team at All About Gardens who created the beautiful garden, and a play-set installed by Play Outdoors Canada. The finishing touch was a massive sand bed for the kids to play in, provided by Northfield Block & Gravel. We hope that Lucas and their children will always enjoy their place of peace to remember and be with their wonderful wife and mother.
Warren's Wedding
READ MORE

Warren and his fiancé Amanda planned the perfect wedding for themselves, with their daughter Kylie as the beautiful flower girl. Warren’s dream was to purchase a lovely set of wedding bands for both him and his wife and a heart-shaped locket for Kylie so she could always carry a picture from the wedding day with her. On Friday, August 19th, Warren and Amanda were married at their home surrounded by friends and family. Sadly, Warren passed away a few hours after the ceremony. We hope that Amanda and the rest of their loved ones find comfort in their memories of the ceremony, and we hope Kylie finds strength in the locket she will always have around her neck.
We’re honoured and proud to have been able to fulfill Warren’s dream.
Mr. Johnny Sends His Love
READ MORE

Antonella was a dedicated fan of Scottish-Canadian country music artist, Johnny Reid. Not only did she have fond memories of attending his concerts with family and friends, but now, in some of her most challenging days, his music provided her a sense of comfort and peace. Antonella dreamed of personally connecting with Mr. Reid, and her cousin Carm and her best friend Angela were on a mission to make that happen. With the support of Mr. Reid and his amazing team, Oneday Dreams was able to deliver a personal video message directly from Johnny himself. Surrounded by her closest loved ones, Antonella watched as Johnny sent her his love and well-wishes and even sang her a song. As Antonella’s cousin Carm eloquently stated, this was Antonella’s time to feel the love and warmth she had given to so many of her family members and friends. We’re honoured and proud to be able to fulfill this dream!
