University DreamCatchers help cancer patient

Bloomsburg University’s chapter of the Hospice Dreamcatcher Foundation, otherwise known as ‘Dreamcatchers,’ helped a terminally ill man fulfill his dream of visiting Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The hospice patient, known as Robert, was visited last week by the dreamcatchers, to meet him and his family.
The dreamcatchers were there to help Robert complete his final dream: visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Kelly Dauber, chapter advisor, said, “We got a true taste of what it is like to be a Dreamcatchers club, it was special.”
The Hospice Dreamcatcher Foundation was founded in 2009 by, then high schooler, Caitlyn Crommet, who designed the not-for-profit organization to allow high school and college students to interact with hospice patients to fulfil their last dream.
Now, Dreamcatchers is expanding rapidly nationwide, with almost 30 chapters in 15 states across the country.
