Sunshine Foundation gives teen dream come true

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Members of the Sunshine Foundation's Dream Come True Program had a special gift for Sam Villari. They presented the 16-year-old with a paid trip to Disney World.

Doctors diagnosed Villari with muscular dystrophy when he was just 4. His mother died in February from cancer, and he's never really had a relationship with his father. But despite life's setbacks, the Hammonton High junior thinks about others.

"I want to help people when I get older."

True to form it's not the rides and fun of Florida he's looking forward to but rather visiting his aunt.

The Sunshine Foundation is a 34-year-old organization that answers the dreams of chronically ill, physically challenged and abused children.
