Surprise Beach Trip 4 Mom W/ Thyroid Cancer
Organized by: Samantha Vaudrin
My mom is battling with thyroid cancer. At first she tried to do all natural things to fight it, but it wasn't working so well. So she finally had surgery on her neck over a year ago, along with a few doses of radioactive pills, and afterwards she was in remission. But we found out a few months ago that she is no longer in remission. My mom loves the beach more than anything, so I am trying to surprise her with a beach trip to Florida to give her a healing vacation, I am hoping that she doesn't find out about this before I get to surprise her, in case I don't come up with enough to go. I am working with an amazing organization called Planting Peace, I am so grateful for Planting Peace, they are gracious enough to help with the expenses of my mom staying in a condo on the beach, but since my family has always been low-income, and I am a 19 year old who lives on her own, I am honestly on a really short budget. So I am asking for help so I can pay for round trip plane tickets (one for her and one for myself), food, some more small surprises for her, and a rental car. I love my mom to death and if I could do this for her she would be so proud of me. Anything you can donate DOES help and is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much to all kind souls :)
I am also hoping on holding small fundraisers (bake sales, etc.), if you would like to keep updated on those let me know. :) If I do not come up with enough to take the trip by Christmas I will use whatever I make to get her an amazing gift. I will keep everyone as updated as possible.
