Winner Selected by Sundance Vacations’ Facebook Community
WILKES-BARRE, PA–(Marketwire – July 13, 2010) – Sundance Vacations today announced that Faye Shank of Hanover, PA is the winner of the Final Facebook Cruise Giveaway Contest. This is the last cruise giveaway in a series of Facebook contests by Sundance Vacations to give away six free cruises between April and June. Faye was nominated and chosen as the winner of the free cruise by Sundance Vacations’ Facebook community.
Faye suffers from seizures due to a disease called Lupus. Because of the seizures, Faye said she was “home bound and literally dropped out of everyday activities for fear of a seizure coming without any warning and becoming seriously hurt in the falls.” Luckily, after three years on a waiting list at Canine Partners for Life, she now has Dreyfus. Dreyfus is a fully trained service dog with the special ability to sense seizure activity in humans. Faye said she is “now able to vacation safely & happily” with her service dog by her side. Faye wrote in her essay that “Dreyfus is my independence. He has seen me through weekly seizures and even alerted me on Christmas of ’09 to a stroke so early that I was able to get to the hospital in time for the medicine to be effective.”
Scott Carey, Sundance Vacations Communications Director, said, “Faye has put up with so much because of her seizures. It is great to know that Faye can now enjoy a vacation and not worry because she has the help she needs. Throughout the six contests, the Sundance Vacations Facebook community really rallied around some of the most heartfelt and touching stories.”

- Sundance Vacations voucher for a four-day, three-night cruise for two;
- Cruise leaves from ports in Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, or Los Angeles;
- Round-trip airfare for two (not to exceed $800 total) to port city;
