The foundation’s hope is to make an incredibly difficult and painful time somewhat more bearable by providing these children and their families with resources needed to ensure that they go on to live healthy, happy and productive lives.

Dreams from Drake: About Drake Ross Pettit
Drake Ross Pettit was born on June 1, 2008. Drake loved playing and sharing his toys with everyone! He loved pirates, and really liked the show Jake and the Neverland Pirates. In fact, for Drake’s fourth birthday party, he wanted it to be a pirate theme. His house was decorated with all-things pirate – treasure chests and treasure hunts, planks, and more! The kids decorated pirate faces and got to wear pirate “earrings”, too! There was a pirate pinata full of candy for everyone to share, because as Drake always said, “Sharing is caring.”
