Welcome to Dreams to Memories Foundation

Dreams to Memories Foundation Buffalo

This trip to Disney World gave us the gift of not only a dream we didn't think possible, but a chance for us to leave some of the effects of cancer behind. This trip gave us the most important gift of connection. We had the chance to reconnect as parents and spouses instead of patient and caregiver.  At one point we both had the same idea at the same time like we used to before I got sick and it was a huge moment for us.  We were on the same page again!  We high fived :).  Our kiddos used to be amazed how we were able to talk from across a room without saying anything, and we had some of that back again.  (Chemo brain doesn't help, but it's getting better:).  I was able to spend much needed one on one time with each kiddo, which really helped us reconnect.  We loved our room at the Art of Animation.  We loved Magic Kingdom.  Lots of fun and laughs! We all love Star Wars so really loved Hollywood Studios.  

Dreams to Memories is about creating lifetime memories for both parents and children.
