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 5 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.
Lori and her husband Ed have been married 27 1/2 years. They have two children, Colby 29 and Rylie 24 and are Gammie and Pa Pa to 17 month old Melody (Melli). Since Melody’s birth she became the 5th living female on Lori’s side completing five living generations. Lori’s grandma was born in 1921 and Melody was born in 2021 making them 100 years apart.
In Lori’s spare time she enjoys spoiling her new granddaughter, volunteering for Going To The Dogs Caring for K9’s and the Ronald McDonald House. She also enjoys decorating and remodeling her home as well as landscaping and planting flowers in her yard. She is also the mom to 4 fur babies Bentley, Bandit, Bella, and a feral cat named Beasley.
Lori’s favorite quote is “Let Your Dreams Be Bigger Than Your Fears and Your Actions Louder Than Your Words ”
As a local titleholder Lori would embrace the opportunity to become involved with the
Victoria’s Voice Foundation which is the corporate philanthropy of the Mrs. America organization to raise awareness of drug overdose and substance abuse. The Foundation was created by David Siegel after he and his wife Jackie lost their beautiful daughter, Victoria, to a drug overdose on June 6, 2015. She was only 18.
Their mission is to prevent addiction and save lives.
