Our goal is to raise $4,000 for my parents to go on their dream crusie! When I was back home recently, I asked them what was the one thing they wanted to do in their lifetime. Both answered that they wanted to go on an Alaskan Cruise. Flying is no longer an option for my Dad as he can't go above 3,000 feet, so a cruise would be perfect for them. My Dad's health has started to rapidly decline after 10 years of being diagnosed with Alpha 1 (for those of you who don't know about it, I will post information at the end)
My parents have always done everything that they can for everyone around them, but always forget about themselves. In the 23 years I have been around, I have never seen them take a trip just for them. With the medical expenses they have faced for 10 years, I don't see them attempting a trip. Thats where we all come in! With the help of all of you, their dream will come true! My parents face thousands of Doctor bills every week. My Dad's weekly infusion alone costs $4,000-$5,000. The expenses don't stop there! He requires oxygen, inhalers, & many other medications. He has also added more "complications" to his health that require many medical trips & expenses. Not only is my Dad's health bad, my Mom has many issues her self.
So everyone, lets make their life long dream come true! Even if you can only donate $1, it helps us get one step closer!
