“My family was blessed to experience a trip of a lifetime gifted to us by Treasured Time, the people behind this awesome foundation and its donors. My husband had been battling stage 4 inoperable pancreatic cancer recurrence. Our family had been going through this with him for the past two years. Two years is a very long time when you’re fighting to live every day and you’re praying to God daily that your husband/father will beat this horrible disease. What treasured time offers families like our is a chance to break free from it all, do something they financially otherwise would not be able to do and make some totally awesome memories that can’t be taken away and will truly last a lifetime. The team members are amazingly kind, thoughtful and do good people. They go out of their way to accommodate your every wish and they’re so excited with you. It’s been an blessing to say the least and I hope to help the foundation in the future. Without a doubt Treasured Time will always be near and dear to our hearts. Sincere Thank You’s from the Dwyers ((hugs)).”
Treasured Time provided my family with the vacation that was very much needed and appreciated.
In July, we spent a week at Disney World. We have three children, 17, 15 and 3. The older two have been to Disney, but the youngest was only 1 when I was diagnosed with cancer and we have been unable to afford such a vacation. Treasured Time, not only gave us the ability to take him, but it gave us a vacation from cancer. The month before the vacation was spent planning and talking, as a family, about what we would do when we were there. The week we were there was magical.
From the planning, to the vacation, to the memories and pictures, this is something we will never forget and we can’t thank Treasured Time enough! The Plona Family, July 2015
“I want to thank Treasured Time for granting my wish for my family and me. We had a wonderful time being together as a family to make great memories. When I was going to school to become an RN, I was a single parent and had six children at the time with 2 very young children under the age of 6. I had asked the older children, if they helped me out with the younger 2 and also helped me around the house while I was going to school and working part time at the hospital, that when I became an RN, I would save as much money as I could to take the whole family on a cruise. I became an RN and did what I had promised them saving as much money as I could to take them on that cruise. I almost completed that promise. I had been looking at cruises to see if I had enough money and was almost there when I got diagnosed with cancer. My dream was shattered. I had to have surgery and got the sense from the doctors that I may not survive this. It took me 4 months to recover from the surgery and 2 1/2 years to be able to go back to work. All the while I continued to pay my mortgage and monthly bills with the money I had saved for the cruise and no other income coming into the household. The money I had saved disappeared. I started to work again and got rediagnosed with metastatic cancer only 9 months after starting work. My hopes and dreams of ever going on that cruise with my family were gone. I would never work again. Then one of my daughters told me about your organization, Treasured Time, which granted wishes to adults with life threatening diseases. Before Treasured Time I had no hope of ever going on that cruise with my family. A promise I would never fulfill because of my disease. But because of Treasured Time, I fulfilled that promise made so long ago and we made some wonderful memories that we all will keep in our minds and hearts forever. Thank you again, Treasured Time.” Debra Ouellette, August 2015
