|90. Chris Baginski, with
ostoesarcoma wished to open up
a box of football cards. Brian
Cano from "THE HAUNTED
COLLECTOR SERIES" made this
wish come true! DeLuca Sport
Cards also donated a box.
Sometimes wishes are for the
Mr. Baginski as you see, took his son wherever he wanted to go, making the last days, weeks, months of his life as
special as they could be. They visited Yankee Stadium, casino and spent so much valuable time together doing
what parents do for their child. Mr. & Mrs B are truly an inspiration of what LOVE IS!
Without knowing Mr. & Mrs. Baginski are HAUNTED COLLECTOR fans, never missing a show. So when Brian Cano
showed up on the doorstep, the dad was ecstatic! Brian spent alot of time with the parents as Chris slept. They did a
sweep of their home with Brian and was able to speak with John Zaffis as well. People often forget the caregivers,
but God reminded me that Chris' parents needed a little blessing too.
91. Retired UASF Veteran Master Sgt. Donald
Leach with advanced cardiac disease wishes to
attend his daughters wedding. Mr Leach is
dependent with his care and had no way to attend
until UNITY and MON VALLEY EMS teamed up to

you for your sacrifice and service to keep us free.

97. Rudy with end stage cancer had a wish to give his wife something to remember
him by and something to hold after he passed. Unfortunately Rudy passed on
before his wish could be granted, BUT UNITY followed through with his wish. After
weeks upon weeks of trying to find a rescue a Unity volunteer read about Rudy
and went on her own search. Needless to say the little T-CUP chihuahua on the
left was given to Rudy's wife as a Christmas present. Her name is:
"Cielo Amore".....Meaning....."Heavenly Love" CUTE?
98. Unity's New Castle chapter thanks to Becky Rainville granted a wish for a lady who needed a gas stove to
replace hers which was unusable. Her caregivers had to cook meals at their homes and bring them to her house,
this afforded the C/G's to cook her meals HOT at her home.....Thanks Becky Great Job.
99-104...OPERATION CHRISTMAS WISH served 5 deserving families with the
spirit of Christmas. One was for a 33 year old lady battling breast cancer,
giving her 2 young boys new bikes and games etc...Mr Phil Salerno who is
battling metastatic cancer was granted his wish of Christmas for his family. An
independent contractor when he became ill he lost everything. SO, Unity with
"PICTURE ME" at Ross Park Mall, "AmyBsphotography" and "The Conley
Resort" in Butler made sure his wish was more than he could wish for. Picture
Me did professional sittings, AmyB's professionally photographed his wish as
it took place, and The Conley Resort accomodated his wish to see his family
smile and have fun and forget about his illness. The Conley provided
overnight stay for his family, water park passes and dinner. Their staff also
donated their time after hours to make his wish special! Thanks to all Unity
volunteers who made this wish possible and to Diana Rafferty who helped
make this wish extra special with some awesome gifts....Here is a picture of
Phil's family with Unity volunteers and YES JOURNEY did go along to provide
some much needed therapy and made everyone smile!
