Name: Diana H.
WEL Wish: Tattoo
Diana found a love of tattoos later on life with her first ink just a few years ago. When staff at Wesley Enhanced Living heard her talking about wanting another, they were quick to enroll her in the WEL Wishes program to make it happen! Thanks to Ivy Calhoun of Davidian Tattoo in Hatboro, PA, Diana's wish came true and she was able to get a beautiful piece featuring the names and birthdates of her children in a border of shamrocks. Don't worry, we checked the names and dates twice! Thrilled with her new ink, Diana is already making plans for a third.
Name: Richard W.
WEL Wish: Haunted Attraction
Richard W. accomplished his WEL Wish just in time for Halloween! A long-time lover of haunted attractions, Richard went to Terror Behind the Walls in October of 2017 and decided to take October of 2018 to the next level. With the help of Sleepy Hollow in Newtown, PA, Richard not only got to enjoy the Haunted Attraction, he became a "cast member" for the night! Scaring locals and making friends, Richard fulfilled his Halloween WEL Wish.
Residents from Wesley Enhanced Living Doylestown were recently celebrated as their wishes were fulfilled! Live musical performances, ziplinging, ballroom dancing, and airplane flights were all achieved through our WEL Wishes program!
