SPOKANE, Wash. -- On Wednesday, KHQ shared with you a heartbreaking Help Me Hayley request from the Ronald McDonald House. They wanted to shower every single family they would be working with on Christmas, with some holiday magic. They still had five families they were hopeful donors would adopt.

SPOKANE, Wash. - Last week, we introduced you to an elderly volunteer for the Wishing Star Foundation. After a colon cancer diagnosis, she spent her days making 850 blankets for families the Wishing Star crew works with. With the cancer spreading to other organs, she had a wish of her own. "There isn't anything more they can do," Patricia Basler said. "I'm not ready to go yet."

SPOKANE, Wash. - A woman who has devoted the final years of her life to making blankets for the families the Wishing Star Foundation helps, now has a final wish of her own. Patricia Basler's daughter Gina reached out to Wishing Star's Executive Director Dan Curley. The Wishing Star so graciously helps makes the dreams and wishes of people from ages three to 21 come true, but Patricia's age far exceeds their guidelines.
