Lori Brown is a Dream Case Manager with the Dream Factory of Greater Kansas City. She first became involved with the 100% volunteer organization that grants dreams to chronic and critically ill children over 6 years ago after attending a benefit concert where a child was presented their dream onstage. It was after that moment she realized she wanted to become a part of the magical journey of granting dreams to sick children and their families who live each day not knowing what the future may bring. A dream granted adds a little ray of light, a little bit of hope, and a lifetime of memories.
