Joyce is ready for adventures. Health issues have pushed her to start working on her bucket list. She wanted to ride the rapids of the Niagara River, something she had never done.

Senior Wishes worked with Niagara Jet Adventures in Youngstown to make her dream come true. “It is something I will never forget, and I’m ready to go again!”

We love this adventurous spirit!  We couldn’t be happier for Joyce!

Senior Wishes’ first wish was granted in March 2014, and since then the organization has been recognizing WNY’s seniors in increasing numbers with the support of community members and corporate sponsors.  Other wishes granted have included travel to reunite family members, including a recent trip allowing a grandmother to visit her sick granddaughter; trips to sporting or cultural events; painting, photography and swim lessons; makeovers; and museum tours.

To learn how to apply for a wish, visit or call 716-508-2121.
