Chrissy Meets Journey

July 21, 2017

Our wish grant recipient, Chrissy, got to meet Journey last month. She wrote back to us with this beautiful testimonial. Here it is, full and unedited!

“Having cancer for 11 years takes a toll on you mentally, spiritually and physically. Sometimes it just sucks the life out of you, but music seems to always fill me back up. The last year has been the hardest out of 11. I found out Journey was coming to my area and I set my goal. I had to stay alive for six months to hear them sing Don’t Stop Believing. That is my mantra. You can never stop believing and I haven’t!

The night that I had been dreaming about was finally a reality. Do It for the Love arranged for me to not only go to the concert with 3 friends, but to meet the band. I now have an amazing memory to keep my spirits going and will cherish experiencing it with my friends. This was an evening to remember.

I have been getting painful bone marrow biopsies monthly and I play music and the doctor, nurses and I sing during the procedure. Now when I belt out my favorite Journey songs, it will be even more meaningful. Thank you so much for giving me something to look forward to. It was an amazing experience and we were treated as if we were VIP’s.”
