KTLA teamed up with Sebastian Terry of "100 Things" to make a local woman's dream come true.  

Terry, inspired by the sudden loss of his close friend when Terry was just 25 years old, chose to change the way he lived his life. He started a bucket list of 100 life experiences he wanted to accomplish before he died. 

But after completing the majority of his list, Terry realized it was more rewarding to give; so, he has decided to start a new list: 100 people to help. 

Terry sat down with KTLA and via facebook live, he asked KTLA viewers their wildest dream.  The intent was to make one of those dreams come true, and he did.  

Daniel Reyes wrote in about his 76 year old mom, Irene, who has 7 children and nearly 30 grand and great-grandchildren.  She lost her husband,  of nearly 60 years in January to cancer. 

Daniel shared how his mother was living in a La Verne mobile home that was run down, and having given everything she has to family, could really use the help. 

KTLA cameras were rolling as the crew surprised Irene with refurbishing her mobile home.
