My mother was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma earlier this year. After undergoing surgery and months of chemo she seems to be doing well. I'd like to take advantage of this while it lasts and take her on an epic vacation. Currently our Vacation budget is 700 and we're wondering if we could wiggle going all the way to Niagara falls, but may end up settling for our neighbor Michigan. Either way we'll be relying on camping most nights in order to save on lodging. If I can raise another 700 dollars I feel like a lot more places would be an option, or the same vacation but with plush accomidations. Whatever she wants. If I make over 700 in the time frame; wonderful, my mother could use that sort of vacation. If I don't reach 700, it's ok because any amount I raise will mean making her vaction more exciting and comfortable for her. A little about my mother: She was a professor of philosphy before she needed to stop teaching and still wishes to write in the field. She spent most of my childhood in construction management to support our single-parent household. She's always been generous both with giving to charity and family. She's recently finished treatment at the Simon Cancer Center and is living on an extremely meager budget while she cannot work. My mother hasn't gone on much of any real vacations in the past 26 years. Almost all family vacations we took were scheduled around conferences for her work. I want to give her a dream vacation, and I need some help. Give whatever you feel comfortable with. Passing the word along is appreciated so much and is a helpful contribution! Donations will be accepted until the end of July.
