One Last Big Adventure

Organized by: Lynn Prowitt

EVENT DATE Sep 24, 2014

THE STORY:

My college boyfriend has Parkinson's Disease. He and his wife are selling everything, buying a used minivan and hitting the road at the end of the month.

His disease is progressing -- not responding to new, stronger drugs he's taking. He says walking is getting harder and he looks like he is on "a bender" all the time. (He's funny and kind and has this big, warm smile -- the sort of guy you can't help liking.)

They have the chutzpah, the love and the smarts to do this. But they don't have much money. They're down-to-earth people; he used to sell recycled paper and teach rock climbing. They're planning to do volunteer work along their journey in exchange for room and board. I would love to send them a nice, big check (which will be anonymous) so he can have more choices and be more comfortable on his last big adventure. Please help. I only have a week!
