Tuesdays With Lori Wish Granting Program

What is Tuesdays with Lori?

Tuesdays with Lori is a new wish granting legacy program that honors the memory of Lori Radel and her love of Twilight Wish Foundation’s mission. Lori loved granting wishes. She felt that seniors were a treasure and she wanted to give back to them after they had given of themselves throughout their lives.

She planned to retire early and dedicate her life to helping grant wishes to our most under served and oftentimes, forgotten and alone, seniors. Lori fought the effects of an autoimmune disorder for years. Unexpectedly, she passed in 2017, at the much too young age of 55.

Her dream of making a difference at Twilight Wish seemed like it would never happen. After she passed, her family and friends were driven to create this new program in Lori’s memory to grant the wishes of our elders who are at the end of their life’s journey.

Lori’s son, Corey, named the program which was influenced by the book, Tuesdays with Morrie which focuses on the individual and how important it is for all generations to value the lives of our elders and to honor their contributions toward paving the path for all of us.

Lori was heartbroken at the idea of seniors being alone without resources and knew that these simple wishes really changed their lives in tangible ways.  The simple act of lunch out or cards sent brought so much joy to people who are often forgotten and ignored.  Lori’s mission was to bring value and care to our seniors.

If you are unable to attend this year’s event, but are inspired to be a corporate or individual sponsor of Tuesdays with Lori, you can do so below.  All Tuesdays with Lori sponsors will be recognized in print and electronic program materials.  We welcome all donation levels.

Evelyn C., 92, Hatboro, PA

Thanks to our generous donors, Evelyn will soon have her air conditioner!

Evelyn’s health has been failing over the last few years.  She is cared for by her sister Mary with whom she shares a house.  They do have central air conditioning on the first floor but Evelyn’s bedroom is on the second.  It gets incredibly hot and it is uncomfortable to sleep.  Many nights she ends up sleeping on her couch to stay cool.  She has been nominated to receive a portable air conditioner for her bedroom.

Both Evelyn and Mary were involved with the Bux Mont Art League for many years.  Evelyn also enjoyed participating and helping with events at her local senior center before she had to give up driving.

 

 

Constance H., 89, Ocean Park, ME

We are thrilled to say that Constance will be having her wish granted!  Thank you to all who fund-raised and donated to make this happen!

Constance lives in a retirement community and always goes out of her way to help others.  She has delivered mail to residents who cannot get out, watched others pets while they were in hospital, and made and brought meals to those who are sick.  She also started a book club which has helped many who were feeling isolated become more social.  She has wanted to have her teeth fixed for many years so she could eat her favorite foods again and so she could feel more confident when she smiles. Because she lives on a fixed income, she cannot afford to have them fixed on her own.
