funeral expenses etc

$4,135 of $9,500 goal

Raised by 106 people in 37 months
Thank you for checking out our campaign.

Amy is a single mother of 3 now grown children. She has stage 4 terminal uterine cancer which has spread to both of her lungs.

This campaign has served a few purposes.

It initially helped cover expenses of her youngest child’s senior year of high school and transition to college.

It has also helped with some medical expenses that were uncovered by insurance.

Another goal is to help with any final expenses. It is Amy’s desire to not pass along any of these expenses to her children who are all in their early 20s.

Finally, her daughter joined the Navy. She is planning a trip to go to the graduation from Boot Camp in Illinois. These expenses include gas and food for the trip. Shelter has already been provided. While in Illinois she will get to meet her grandson for the first time.

Thank you to all who have shared and donated! We still have a way to go.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who made the Chicago trip possible. Her graduation was amazing, we were beyond happy to see each other! It was a powerful moment. And then, later on in the day, at a lovely park along Lake Michigan, her boyfriend proposed and she said yes! I got to be a part of two wonderful, irreplaceable moments thanks to you.
I also got to spend a few hours with my grandson, Hunter.
All in all it was an amazing adventure.
All the thanks in the world isn’t enough.

From now on, any monies collected go directly to final expenses unless another issue arises (it shouldn’t).
If you happened to be a part of that nastiness on facebook and have any questions about the fundraising or would like to see the diagnosis letter from my doctor feel free to message me. The slander can easily be disproved. I have been honest with my donors from day one. I am not like some people who play heartstrings just to get money. I would
Never have even started this had my mother not convinced me it was necessary. I hate asking for help. But I am overjoyed that I have gotten so much!
Thank you all for a memory that will last forever.

We have 5 days left for fundraising for the Chicago trip. If you could share the campaign that would help immensely.
Thank you all for your support.

Please remember that we are fundraising hard for this Chicago trip. We leave 2 weeks from today. Our largest expense will be fuel. After that it will be food (we will be gone approximately 5 days). Shelter is already taken care of and parking/tickets cost us nothing. We are bare bonesing this trip.
Why is this trip important enough to help fund???
This will be the first time I get to physically hold my grandson Hunter who is a year and a half old. I have been waiting to meet him all this time.
Bailey is now in the Navy. They decide where she goes from now on and also make all decisions about when she can get leave. We simply do not know when I will get to see her again. That’s my selfish part. But she also is looking forward to our presence. She has worked really hard and deserves her family (some of us) there to show all the support she has gotten in her decision and hard work. Plus there is a surprise afoot (stay tuned!).
The reality is that it comes down to timing. I do not know when or if I will ever get to physically be with these people who mean the world to me.
You all have already donated. It has meant so much. I would never ask you to donate again. Once is more than generous, and some of you have been BIG
TIME generous!
What I can ask is that you find one friend, one relative, one coworker, one neighbor, just one person. If you can get one person to donate $5, $10, or $20 we would be able to meet and possibly exceed our trip goal well before we have to leave. We really need all donations for this submitted no later than Sunday April 20th in order to ensure I have it for the trip.
Anyone who can accomplish this small challenge would be deeply appreciated.
Thank you all, once again.
Your support, kindness, and love has meant the world. Through you all we managed to take care of Bailey’s entire senior year (an expensive one) and help with a few various medical expenses. YOU made this happen. YOU are all amazing.

We are pushing the fundraising to cover the Chicago trip. This is a trip to Great Lakes Naval Station for my daughter’s graduation from Navy boot camp. Estimated cost of the trip is approximately $500. This includes everything there and back.
We are scheduled to leave Wednesday the 24th. We really need to raise all funds by the 21st (so that they are all deposited and available for use).
The reality is that this will be my last trip. But I simply cannot miss this. I have no idea when I will see her again. I will also be having my first ever visit with my (only) grandson.
This trip means the world to me.
There is a lot planned that I can’t even get into yet (but it will be included in an update).
So share the campaign. Do whatever we have to do to meet this goal.
Thanks for all your help.
