CHARLESTON, W.Va. --It took just a little more than a month and a lot of help from the community, but Diana Browning made her friend's dreams come true.
Boone County resident Steve Morgan, who recently was diagnosed with lung cancer, will fulfill the last of his three wishes with a weeklong trip to Disney World, beginning Friday.
"It seems like, there towards the end, more of the community has been stepping up," Browning said. "They even have a little bit of spending money."
Morgan got another of his wishes on Thursday, when he and his sister/caregiver, Debbie Pritchard, had a meeting with Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin in his office at the state Capitol Complex.
Morgan, who has cerebral palsy, wanted to talk with the governor about issues that affect West Virginians with disabilities. For instance, he wanted Tomblin to know how important programs such as Social Security are for people with disabilities.
He also wanted the governor to encourage more businesses to hire people with disabilities.
"He wants more businesses to realize that handicapped people want to work to the best of their abilities," Pritchard said.
He also wants Tomblin to support the work that police are doing in Boone County to keep drugs off the streets and to continue to support veterans, Pritchard said.
