Christopher Auton, 66, a resident of Heritage Hall nursing facility in Rich Creek, Virginia, had his wish to visit Dollywood in the fall and see the changing leaves granted, thanks to many generous donors. Chris has cerebral palsy and is a quadriplegic. He is a permanent resident of Heritage Hall and, sadly, has no family that visits him. Despite all he has been through, Chris is very sweet and brings much joy to all who know him. Because of the life he has lived, he has never been able to experience many of the things that others have. His wish to travel to Pigeon Forge and visit Dollywood was granted thanks to the generosity of many donors. Because of his medical condition, he was accompanied by both a nurse and a CNA. Chris loved everything about his trip, but his favorite part was the Dollywood Stampede!
