1st Family Vacation For Mom With Cancer

I have been friends with Andrea (Schwenke) Sugaski since we were in middle school in Berea, OH.  Many miles have separated us over the years, but our friendship has stayed strong.  About three years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer.  She endured chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.   A PET scan in August of 2012 showed the devastating facts that the cancer had increased in size and it had spread.  She had to quit her job last month due to her health. 

I approached her recently to see if she would allow me to find a way to help her family, which includes her husband of 7 years, Cary, and their 6 yo daughter, Grace.  Her wish was for them to be able to take their FIRST vacation!   The 3 of them have NEVER taken a family vacation!  She told me to seek God and pray about it so here we are today. 

Her faith brings her through each and every day and she gives all the glory to God.  She trusts Him and His plan for her.  If you would like to read more about her journey, her CaringBridge page is  http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/andreasugaski2.

Let's make this wish come true!  Please share this page with anyone you know.

UPDATE:  Even though we have reached our goal, please continue to donate!  Additional funds will go to her family for food and unaccounted for costs during their upcoming trip to FLORIDA!  THANK YOU for your overwhelming support!
