Dreams Made Here: Meet Lincoln

Enjoy a sweet, Manitoba-made treat and help make a dream come true for Lincoln: an equally sweet prairie boy.

Lincoln’s Dream

Meet Lincoln: an almost-four-year-old who is sweet as can be and incredibly hard working.

He helps his parents complete chores around the family horse farm everyday. From feeding the animals to cutting the grass to raking horse poo, Lincoln’s always eager to help.

Lincoln has Cystic Fibrosis, also known as CF. This fatal condition causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system, and various organs throughout the body.

Despite daily physiotherapy, workouts, and medication, Lincoln lives a full and happy life. He loves to build replicas of farm equipment with his Lego—tractors are his favourite—and he is a huge Jurassic Park fan.

He also loves his RV. Back in 2019, The Dream Factory was able to work with Lincoln’s family to transform a full-sized charter bus into a private RV.

Because of his illness, traveling can be very dangerous for Lincoln. With this private bus, Lincoln can go on adventures without the risk of sharing air with other travellers. When it’s safe to do so, Lincoln’s family plans to embark on a dream road trip.

Traveling across the country means Lincoln will be able to visit his many, many family members—he has over 20 aunties and uncles who love him so much. He also hopes to see lots of animals during the trip...maybe even a few dinosaurs!
