Lisa W., 66, Chester, PA

Lisa enjoys helping her neighbors when she can, but her hearing loss has led her to pull back because she cannot communicate with them. It has also affected to connect to her medical care, especially making appointments and following up with her doctors. She feels very isolated and wishes for hearing aids so she can participate fully in her daily life. We need to raise $1,600 to make Lisa’s simple wish to hear come true!

Lois, G., 98, Philadelphia, PA

Lois George, 98, a resident of Philadelphia, PA, recently had her wish for hearing aids granted, thanks to Twilight Wish. George is very independent and still lives on her own, but needed hearing aids. Living on a fixed income, she could not afford them herself. Her social worker nominated her and wrote “her independence is of great value to her and these hearing aids would allow her to continue living on her own and independently.” Previously, George volunteered her time as a member of the Ladies Aid Society at Penn Presbyterian Hospital, operating the gift shop there. She was also very involved in the Quaker Friends school where she worked as a receptionist. Thank you to Beltone Hearing for granting her wish!

Pauline H., 79, Perkasie, PA

  Bucks County nonprofits Twilight Wish Foundation and Between Friends Outreach partnered to grant the wishes of two Perkasie seniors in need. JoAnn Suttle, 73, and Pauline Harris, 79, are neighbors who both have several diseased elm trees on their properties that could fall at any moment, which would destroy their homes at the least, according to a tree specialist.  Both women are widowed and live on fixed incomes.  They have exhausted all other options to get the trees removed so turned to Twilight Wish for assistance. Original estimates were more than $4,000 per property so Twilight Wish staff reached out to Between Friends Outreach to see if they had resources that could help. Tara Stoop, executive director of Between Friends Outreach, contacted local tree service, Greenleaf Tree Service, who donated their services to remove the trees.  Twilight Wish Foundation will be covering the cost of the crane rental to remove the diseased trees.

Juanita H., 86, Erie, PA

Juanita Helmuth, a resident of Erie, Pennsylvania, had her wish to have the large fountain in her yard restored to working order granted, thanks to Twilight Wish Foundation. Helmuth, 86, has lived in her home for over 60 years.  Her late husband built the fountain for her in their backyard years ago and they enjoyed it every summer.  Sadly, the fountain has fallen into disrepair and is not in working condition. Helmuth is now in hospice because of end stage heart failure and her wish is to have it repaired and working before she passes.  She often sits looking into the backyard and having the foundation working will bring her peace at this time in her life. Thanks to Chuck Howard of Howards Four Season Works for donating his time to complete this special wish.

Bill D., 71, Monongahela, PA

William Dovalovsky, a resident of Monongahela, Pennsylvania, had his wish for hearing aids granted, thanks to Twilight Wish Foundation and Beltone in Washington, PA. Dovalovsky, 71, has muscular dystrophy and lives alone. Both of his hearing aids are broken and his glasses are over five years old. Because he lives on a fixed income, he can’t afford to replace either on his own. Having both replaced will greatly improve his quality of life. Dovalovsky received his hearing aids on Thursday, July 1st.
