I can’t say enough about Infinate Wishes Foundation.. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019 and a volunteer from the foundation found me through Facebook .. Since then it’s been an ongoing and growing relationship.. The work the foundation does is amazing and Lisa put her heart and soul into what she does… I am now a part of this foundation and I look forward to being able to help someone and bring a smile to their face just like they did for me…

As a very thankful business owner, I believe in the philosophy of giving back whenever and where ever we can. In considering the best recipients for our philanthropy, we came across Infinite Wishes and were moved by the incredible work they do with adults (and military personnel and first responders!) who have medical issues and are in desperate need of a mental break to cope with all of their stress. While we have donated to children's charities that offer similar family breaks, we were intrigued by Infinite Wishes and their acknowledgment that adults are also suffering and are equally in need of support. Over the past several years, we are proud to have helped Lisa and Infinite Wishes through donations of money, timeshares, and hotels, and we will continue to be active supporters as long as their incredible work continues.

We wholeheartedly pledge our support and endorsement for Infinite Wishes. Our sincere wish is that you will never require or need their assistance, but we're very fortunate that they exist to help those in need. Infinite Wishes is the official charity of Intricity, LLC., and we're honored to be an active supporter of this fine organization.

Thank you, Lisa, and Infinite Wishes for all of the hard work and dedication!

Troy, we appreciate your generosity and support. We could not do what we do without the support of people like you and Intricity, LLC. You have helped us provide respite trips for our adults as well as veterans, and our partnership has allowed us to give to others in a way we never dreamed possible. We can't thank you enough!

Infinite Wishes/Heroes is a fantastic organization. As a combat Veteran there are lots of non-profit resources available but Infinite Heroes gratitude tours are next to none. I had the pleasure of being a recipient of a gratitude tour in the summer of 2020. Everything was taken care of from lodging, meals, activities, spending money, and even gas. My family enjoyed an exciting a restful stay in beautiful Sarasota - we didn't want to leave. I highly recommend this charity to donors and especially to Veterans who served our country honorably.

After my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in 2018 (second to cervical cancer in 2013), I had the honor of being gifted a little getaway to Universal Studios with lodging at the Marriott Vacation Club for my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I. Until we had that time away, I didn’t realize how much it was needed. I felt undeserving of such an incredible gift. We had a fabulous time!!! Lisa made sure everything was taken care of and we were treated like royalty! I now help with volunteering in any way I can from north central FL to help with Infinite Wishes / Heroes. This is a nonprofit full of heart and I will forever be grateful for them!

Being a person who always helped out with local charity events and gave a little here and there, when I could afford a little, I decided to attend an old HS friend's charity event. I saw the wonderful things the Infinite Wishes Foundation had done for people who were suffering from life threatening illnesses. So, I dug a little deeper into my pocket to help out, once again. Later that year I was diagnosed with Cancer and found myself fighting and struggling with the reality that is being a Cancer patient. I am not one to embrace the drama, but I found myself sinking emotionally and dreading the next disappointing report. All the while I tried to maintain a positive outlook.
Then I was talking with Lisa (who was a founding member) and she said, "you know we can help you feel better, that's what we do!" Somewhat embarrassed, I acknowledged her statement and then asked her how she could help me?
Ultimately, she and her team arranged for me to take a vacation from the treatments and my day-to-day environment, allowing me to free my mind from the many painful realities, and it gave me a renewed sense of freedom. I was able to see the beauty of everything. Everything around me and even find a way to make the treatments progressed.
The great things they do for people who are involved in fighting battles to survive (whatever they may be) are truly uplifting! sometimes they can only do something small, like sending food to someone who is in need. But every small act seems to be met with such joy...I know others Cancer survivors who have told me that they too were pleasantly surprised by the kindness found in the acts of caring they received from Infinite Wishes!
I am greatly appreciative for all they did for me! Thanks for all the help!

I first met Lisa Ann in our high school days Some 30 years later We are both living in Florida and got together; we were catching up on what we’re doing with our lives. When she told me about infinite wishes and have it all began with Joan I was simply amazed not people would do that and then on top of that to create a foundation to help people in need simply amazing. It was that at that point that I mention a few friends that were in need without hesitation Lisa Ann and infinite wishes sent out a gift package of Omaha steaks to help relieve some of the financial burden and cost associated with an illness.
The topper of it all as I said in the beginning we were catching up on our lives I had mentioned that I have COPD and I am not working due to Covid as I am a high risk due to my condition not thinking anything of it. Next thing I know I received.
Lo and behold through the Generosity of infinite wishes foundation and Lisa Ann I to also received a delivery of Omaha steaks to help my family financially.
I am truly grateful for this generous gift .
With the prices of food being so high this will go along way thank you infinite wishes foundation and Lisa Ann
