An avid gardener, John wished for raised planters and plants to show off his green thumb.
Thanks to Carolyn Appleyard, John’s Wish for a raised garden and new plants came true! John has been able to get back to his “old self” by showing off his gardening skills. John’s daughter, Jennifer, shared that his experience with My Wish made him so happy and inspired him to spruce up his look as well. His grandchildren enjoyed the opportunity to garden with their Grandpa, again. It was an experience that the whole family will never forget.
