Why Dreams? - Dreams2Live4

Metastatic cancer drains families of joy, hope and finances. It can be a long and difficult journey for patients. Often they and their partners cannot work and they can no longer do many things that other families take for granted. By offering patients a chance to dream, we reignite a sense of control and optimism in their lives. Conversations change and so does the outlook of patients and their families.

As one of our Dreamers told us:

“My idea of a perfect day is to go to bed with dream and wake up with a purpose.”

That’s why giving a dream provides a patient and their families something to strive for, something to hope for, something to live for. There is excitement and anticipation in identifying, planning, and focusing on a ‘dream’. When it is achieved, there is a feeling of joy and positive well being that lasts beyond the dream itself. All this translates to a healthy state of mind that benefits adults with cancer.
