Veteran Frank Borrell's Final Wish Comes True Thanks To Dream Foundation

Posted: Updated:

Veteran Frank Borrell was lucky enough to re-visit the USS Missouri, the ship he once worked on as a young sailor during WWII. At 94 years old, Borrell has terminal cancer and he hoped to climb aboard the historic ship once more while he still could.

Borrell's wish came true thanks to the Dream Foundation, a nonprofit organization working to make dreams come true for seniors and other adults facing life-threatening illnesses.
