Send Danny Nickerson to LegoLand

Organized by: Al Blazek

Danny Nickerson has a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumor that has a 10% survival rate over 18 months. I was browsing Reddit and was touched by the outpouring of love and concern for this young man.

I wanted to organize something so that he could have the experience of a lifetime in the short time he has left.

It's difficult to determine just how much this would cost, so I've estimated the outlay as follows:

  • $500 Lego Land hotel stay for 2 days for a family of 4 (I have no idea how many folks are in Danny's family, so this will need to do)
  • $1,800 4 round-trip tickets from Boston to San Diego; airline TBD
  • $1,000 Incidental expenses: Gasoline for car trip to the airport, parking, taxi from San Diego to Legoland, meals, etc.

I've never done one of these before, so if you have questions or suggestions on how to make this better, drop me a line.

Let's do this, Reddit!
