Victoria’s wish is simply a new chair.
Sometimes it’s the most simple things that matter. To Victoria, what matters most is being surrounded by her grandchildren when they visit her home. Due to her illness, Victoria is unable to comfortably and safely move around her home, often times having to stay in her room. When given the chance to have one final wish, she didn’t hesitate to request a recliner so that she can comfortably and safely stay in her living room and be surrounded by the laughter and love of her family. For Victoria, a chair will become the heart of her home.
