Dameon Caldwell Death – We are deeply sorry to announce the death of Dameon Caldwell, who passed away after a battle with a chronic heart failure. Dameon Caldwell passed away on July 27, 2022 at the age of 27.
Dameon Caldwell entered foster care when he was seven years old and moved around to different homes, but he was never fully adopted.
Dameon Caldwell was introduced to One Simple Wish in 2019.
One Simple Wish founder Danielle Gletow and her team would stop at nothing for 27-year-old Caldwell, who died in hospice after battling chronic heart failure.
“He had wanted to plan his own memorial and wanted it to be on his terms,” Gletow said. He wanted it to be a celebration, he didn’t want it to be this depressing funeral.”
Gletow described Caldwell as someone with a pure, genuine nature about him that shines through in everything he does.
He is just one of the approximate 25-30,000 foster care individuals in the country served by One Simple Wish.
Dameon Caldwell raised over $50,000 and was still accepting more donations up until the time of his death.
A portion of the donations will be used to fulfill a wish list for Caldwell. The rest will be out toward his memorial fund for LGBTQ+ youth in foster care
