“Boots and Blessings” Gala Helps Grant Wishes for Terminally Ill Mothers

Ally's Wish, a non profit group which helps grant wishes for terminally ill mothers, hosted its second annual Boots and Blessings Gala at Gilley's in Dallas on Saturday night.

Event organizers estimated 300 people in attendance.

Ally's Wish is sending Tanya Norris and her family to Nashville in June. The 44-year-old mother is fighting glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

"I think it's important to think about what kind of memories can you make," said Norris. "The doctor said I'm not going to give you a date, I'm not going to tell you how long."

In two years, Ally's Wish has granted 18 wishes, and currently has requests for 9 others excluding Norris'.

The Real Housewives of Dallas star LeeAnne Locken served as the event's emcee.
