2018 – Dream Child – Megan

 

Community Hospice’s pediatric program, Community PedsCare, has chosen Megan as our dream child for the 16th Annual Fishing for Dreams tournament.

Megan is a joyful, young girl with a smile that will melt your heart! She lives with her cousins Aaliyah and Mandy. While she has a developmental delay and suffers from seizures, she surely doesn’t let it get her down.

Like most young kids these days, Megan loves to spend time playing on her tablet and anything Spider-man! We can’t wait to surprise Megan and her cousins with their Dream Trip at the Captains Meeting!

Established in 2003, FFD is a non-profit charitable organization who supports local children with life threatening medical conditions and families with special needs. A group of folks who love to fish were holding tournaments just for fun but decided to fish for a cause. Thus, FFD was established.

An inshore invitational tournament was FFD’s major yearly fundraiser. This years tournament was held on April 7th. Categories for fish are: Red bass, spotted seatrout and flounder. The evening before fishing commenced, the event kicked off with a pizza social followed by the introduction of our Dream Family. The angler meeting and raffle followed. Fishing began the next morning and continued until 4 p.m. Following the weigh-in, the tournament concluded with an awards ceremony.

A program of Community Hospice of Northeast Florida in collaboration with Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Nemours Children’s Clinic and the University of Florida-Jacksonville, Community PedsCare offers support, comfort and care to these children and their families.
