Organization fulfills dying wish for Phenix City woman

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - Dream Foundation fulfills a dying wish for a Phenix City animal lover.

Reba Reeves, 86, is a resident of Parkwood Health Care on Stadium Drive and she is dying from heart disease.

Reba grew up in the country surrounded by animals. She says people and family tried to make a city girl out of her.

Sandra Jenkins with Parkwood Health Care says the animals have a magical affect on the residents.

"They love activities, they love people, they love the volunteers and of course they love the animals. It's very important for them to get out and be active," Sandra Jenkins said, with Parkwood Health Care.

The Dream Foundation fulfills more than 2500 dreams each year. Jubilee Farms in Opelika supplied the animals for Thursday's event.
