Terri’s Dream Comes True
This breast cancer patient's dream always remained that she would have a private oasis to find peace and solitude
Terri is a breast cancer survivor who is courageously battling this disease. Her one wish was that she would have a private oasis to find peace and solitude in her back yard.
Terri has worked for years as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurse at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and is currently working at Cardin Children’s Hospital. She has given so much, too so many. Her brother in law, Matt Almeida, wanted desperately to do something for this woman in her time of need, as she has given so much of herself. Matt, along with the help of Terri’s husband and numerous businesses around the valley were able to transfer her yard.
Terri’s family organized an entire remodeling of her yard with huge sponsorships from around the valley. The best part….Terri had no idea! Her husband took her on a get a way and they returned to a surprise reveal. What was once a pile of dirt, has been transformed into the vision Terri has always dreamed of. The Breast Cancer Society is proud to be part of such a special effort.
Business owners from around the valley generously donated goods and man power to make this happen. Three days were dedicated to this cause. Volunteers showed up with big hearts and a willingness to get a little dirty. The Gilbert Fire Department was at the reveal wearing pink ribbons and giving pink fire hats away to help raise awareness.
A difference was made in Terri’s life and the life of all those who participated. We are honored, along with all of those who gave so much of their time and energy to give this gift to Terri.
