38 Years ago Sunshine Foundation started with one dream. Bobby, a 4 year old diagnosed with Leukemia, dreamed of seeing snow. Bill Sample, who was a Philadelphia cop stationed on protective duty at St. Christopher’s Hospital, saw the struggle families with sick children went through every day and wanted to make a difference in their lives. Bill, after finding out Bobby’s dream from one of his nurses, drove Bobby and his family up to the Pocono Mountains so Bobby could receive his dream of playing in the snow. In the 38 years since Bill granted Bobby’s dream, Sunshine Foundation has granted over 37,000 dreams to children who are seriously ill, chronically ill, physically challenged or abused.
See the Sunshine in Every Child!
