For 10 years, Bessie Garrett dreamed of showing homeless children a fun time.
What pushed her to do it was meeting an inner-city boy while she was on rounds giving medical treatment to the homeless in Overtown. ``There was an instance where a 5-year-old boy told me that he wanted to get his hair shaved off, and I asked him why,'' Garrett said. ``He told me that if he got his hair shaved off and got really sick, then he could go to Disney World. This really broke my heart.''
