The senior wish program provides opportunities for their patients to relive a cherished memory or experience a new adventure. Wishes are funded with in-kind and monetary donations from businesses and individuals.
One CNS patient, Tom Zaudke, told caretakers he has a great appreciation and love for Bald and Golden Eagles. When given the opportunity to participate in an eagle float on the Colorado River he quickly answered, “Yes,” according to program director Diane Moore.
“Tom thoroughly enjoyed the full-day rafting trip, sponsored by the Canyonlands Field Institute, Moore said. “It was an exciting and educational day for Tom as they viewed and studied the habits of the eagles and other waterfowl.”
Ed Stone, another Moab CNS patient, had his senior wish fulfilled when Pinnacle Helicopters flew him and his son, Ed Stone, Jr., around the area for a bird’s-eye view of Canyonlands National Park and surrounding areas.
