I was 32 yrs old when I first heard the words "You have cancer." I was diagnosed with stage 3a breast cancer and went through surgery, chemo and radiation. A year later I was still getting monthly treatments but was ALMOST done when I was re diagnosed with stage IV. The cancer had spread to my liver, numerous bones and the lungs. I have  a husband and two children age 13 and 8. Stage IV metastatic cancer is what kills and the doctors won't tell me how long I have. This page was originally started as a bucket list for my family and I to take a trip out of the country, but I've come to realize this will never happen. I get too sick too suddenly to be able to travel that far. This month I have been hospitalized twice already, once with a blood infection and once for tumor fevers. Every time I am very sick or hospitalized my husband takes off work to stay by my side. Bills are stacking up and fmla does not pay. This page is now to help offset the cost of keeping me alive. I am sad to let go of my dream of leaving the country before I die, but I need to focus on staying alive right now for as long as I can. Thank you for any donation. My family and I truly appreciate it.

Update- This page is no longer a bucket list fund, it is now to offset medical and living costs. I'm too sick to think about leaving the country, I just need to focus on getting along day by day. Thanks you all for understanding.

Almost half way there! This is pretty amazing! I had a scary reminder last week that life can end suddenly. I was in the hospital with a blood clot and my only symptoms were a swollen face...I almost let it go, but thought it might be an allergic reaction to the chemo I had the day before. Luckily my husband made me follow the on call doctors advice to go to the ER. I now know that I need to be more aware of what my body is telling me. I really want to be able to take this trip with my family! It gives me something to hang on to and dream about. :) Thank you again to every person that donated and to every person who shared this with their friends!

Hey Beth - Have you thought about asking for airline miles? I have almost 50,000 Delta miles I could transfer to you. The only issue is that Delta mostly flies out of JFK, but you could fly out of Philly with a transfer. Let me know if you think you would be able to use them!
