Breast Cancer, Combat Veteran, & A Family Travel Dream
Organized by: Philip Meher
Help us raise money to make a Hawaii travel dream come true for our good friend, Kevin, and his wonderful spouse, Denise, and their two children (Andrew and Jason). Kevin is a Marine combat veteran who served in the Gulf War (Operation Desert Shield/Storm). His spouse, Denise, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 on her 37th birthday. She has been treated with multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. Treatments have caused significant bone damage leading to progressive mobility issues and chronic pain. She has lost her ability to continue working as a Registered Nurse in elderly care. Kevin and Denise have two boys, ages 16 and 10. It has been a lifelong dream of Denise to vacation in Hawaii with her family, but has been unable to do so due to the financial hardship. We would like this wonderful family to be able to enjoy this trip soon - while Denise has good enough health to enjoy the trip.
