/ Story: Holly’s Wish Becomes Reality / Story: Holly’s Wish Becomes Reality

In wild anticipation we waited in line to get our wrist bands for the Bret Michaels
concert. Holly, our wish recipient who is battling multiple myeloma sat nervously tapping her toes awaiting her chance to meet her life long inspiration. Suddenly the venue fills with excitement, BRET MICHAELS appears rockin the sold out crowd. Holly smiled from ear to ear and her exhaustion turns to instant energy. We turn around and she is chair dancing supported by her two daughters.

Holly and Unity volunteers made their way to the stage parting the sea of patrons in
order to get her to her hero. Through the concert Bret made eye contact with Holly and once he saw the t-shirt he knew he would be meeting Holly after the concert! He came over to her, kissed her hand, she melts and he gives her his guitar pick which was over the top for her! Holly is already in 7th heaven gets to meet Bret in person after the concert!

This is what UNITY is all about “Changing lives, 1 wish at a time…” We are Unity A
Journey Of Hope. Unity grants wishes to adults with a life limiting illness in the greater Pittsburgh area. Holly’s wish is one of many where UNITY changes the focus. We are so glad to help make Holly’s wish come true.
