It Took Teamwork to Make This Wish Come True

Guthrie Hospice had a 27 year young female on services with cancer. The patient's wish was to see the Pittsburgh Steelers play before her death. Guthrie Hospice, in conjunction with Adult Wish Foundation made her dream come true. She was able to see her favorite football team play and win. On the 4 hour trip to Pittsburgh, accompanied by 2 Guthrie Hospice RN's, the patient wanted to stop at a Sheetz as she never went to a Sheetz before. After one stop, she wanted to stop at every Sheetz we passed....:-) We laughed together, we cried together. Her symptoms were managed as we made sure she had all the medications she needed. She laughed, she cried, she enjoyed life!!! On our way out from the stadium, she got to meet Jerome Bettis, "THE BUS". This ended the trip with an even bigger smile and sparkles in her eyes. She died three weeks later and she was surrounded by her family and a picture collage of her end of life wish!
