Mary DiCanto, of Middlesex, New Jersey, was recently granted a dream from the Sunshine Foundation for a Trip to the Beach. Mary lives with the challenges of Type 1 Diabetes.
“It was amazing!! The whole family was together, and the house was perfect, three blocks from Seaside Heights beach and boardwalk. We had terrific weather, and we enjoyed every day on the beach and boardwalk. We played games, went on rides, and ate so much boardwalk food. It was a Dream come true and it would not have been possible without your kind generosity!!! This is Something we will remember the rest of our lives. Thank you again and again from our hearts,” said the Dicanto family.

To make these dreams a reality for children that may be turned away from other wish-granting organizations that require a life-threatening or critical diagnosis, Sunshine Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations.
Mary’s “Dream Come True” was made possible through generous donations from the Atlantic Spring, an MW Industries company, and Beth Torah Congregation.
The most common request is a Magical Dream to visit Disney World, Legoland, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios while choosing to stay at the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village near Disney. Sunshine Foundation also answers Special Dreams: shopping sprees, computers and iPads, outdoor playsets, above ground swimming pools, family trips, cruises, adaptive tricycles and other special needs equipment, plus many more.
