Sue Lucas is a fantastic volunteer for Dreams2live4. She is a member of the dynamic Dreams Eastern Suburbs committee throwing her talent and time into to events which raise funds to support the work of Dreams2live4. Sue has also been hands- on in making dreams come true. Here is her report of a recent dream in which she took a major part.

Our Dreamer Jacob is passionate about film making. At 19 he has already made many short films and dreams of having a career in the film industry. However his battle with metastatic cancer has put his dreams on hold.When we put the call out on Facebook 9,000 people  shared his dream. Within days plans were put in place to make Jacob’s dream come true. Dreams2live4 Volunteer, Sue Lucas, was with Jacob when he visited the set of the movie Truth, starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford. 

“From the moment we arrived on set the crew welcomed him with open arms and Jacob was the star on that day on set. Everyone approached him explaining their particular role in making the movie, from the make up department, to the director of photography, sound engineer, lighting guy and special effects guy. The director of Truth, James Vanderbilt, took Jacob through the ins and out of process of what they were filming that day and allowed Jacob to sit with him. I was blown away on how kind, generous and patient all the crew was towards us. Jacob spent almost 12 hours on the set. His sister, Amy, who was with us, said how she had not seen Jacob smile so much in such a long time. I truly believe this was a dream come true for Jacob. So a big shout out and thank you for all the crew on “Truth” particularly the Producer, Antonia Barnard, who really made this happen.”

Thank you Sue for being there with Jacob and sharing the experience with all of us.
