Emma T., 81, Wayne, NJ

Emma T., 82, wished to treat her brother, Carmen,  to dinner for his birthday and to thank him for all he has done for her.  Her poignant wish came true on Carmen’s birthday, July 24th, when they and his wife, Irene, enjoyed a celebratory birthday dinner at Francesco’s Restaurant in Woodland Park, New Jersey.  In honor of this very special occasion, Emma got a new outfit and had her hair and nails done.  This wish was granted thanks to a generous donation from CareOne.  CareOne, a senior care company, held fundraisers at all nine of its Bergen County facilities this summer to benefit Twilight Wish Foundation and assist in granting wishes in New Jersey.  Thanks to New Jersey regional director Sally Buonomo for her work in making this wish come true!  Pictured, from left, Carmen, Emma, and Irene.
