Dreams Come True

One area of health care on the First Coast that is often under the radar is the group that supports children who are battling life-threatening illnesses.

Dreams Come True Jacksonville is funded 100 percent by donations from the community – businesses, individuals and organizations. The nonprofit is dedicated to bringing hope and joy throughout the medical journey to children by fulfilling their dreams. All dollars stay local to fulfill dreams for local kids.

The organization is kicking off its 2016 Dream Campaign with the goal of raising funds for 75 dreams. We learn more from Sheri Criswell, executive director of Dreams Come True, and First Coast resident Ryan Troutman, who received a dream from the group while battling a traumatic brain injury.
