At first, he didn't believe it was true. Eventually, it sunk in that we really meant it.

Let me introduce you to Deon. Having been adopted by his mother "in the Yup'ik way", Deon is my Kotlik-Brother. He was born with hypophosphatasia, a form of brittle bones.  Despite frequent fractures, multiple surgeries, and recurring pneumonia, Deon will have outlived doctors' predictions by 10 years this October. 
Deon wants to go to Disneyland to celebrate his birthday. I want to take him. Unfortunately, between medical needs and the difficulty of getting anywhere from Kotlik, the cost is too much for me to manage on my own. This is where you come in. 
I've set a goal of $10,000. This will cover the basic costs of transportation for Deon, mom, myself, and Deon's best friend/cousin. Anything we achieve beyond that will go toward food and lodging, and making the experience as memorable as possible.
Thank you for any help you can offer.
