Prema“They were the first ones that made me feel loved...”
Prema, 65, is a perfect illustration of compassion despite a heart wrenching upbringing. After being abandoned by her parents at the age of three, she found comfort in the arms of her grandparents —a relief that faded only six years later with the sudden passing of her grandfather and shortly after, grieving the loss of her grandmother. With the help of our Wish Champions, Prema will visit her grandparents’ final resting place for the first time after not being able to attend either funeral nearly six decades ago.
“They were the first ones that made me feel loved,” Prema recalls. With a pint of her grandfather’s favorite ice cream and flowers in hand, she knows this experience will make her feel whole again
