Support happy memories for Robbie!

Robbie lost his father unexpectedly to a drug overdose the same month he lost his mom to Cystic fibrosis. I am starting this go fund me for my 10 year old autistic nephew Robbie. My name is Crystal and I am Robbie's legal guardian and aunt. On May 2nd 2017 my sister lost her battle with cystic fibrosis. An illness that ruined the last 10 years of her life. 22 short days later, on May 24th 2017 her husband and my nephews father lost his battle with addiction. Robbie has great parents who loved him with all of their heart. However due to my sisters sickness and her being in the hospital constantly Robbie didn't really get to experience vacations or really fun things. I don't believe he has even left the state of NY. Since Robbie is autistic I am finding it hard to understand what he is thinking at times. I am afraid that the death of his parents keeps replaying in his mind. Which is why I am starting this go fund me. I want to give Robbie a dream vacation, something happy and wonderful that he can replay over and over. I would like to be able to take him to Disney and meet all the Disney characters. Please help me give Robbie this chance to gain some happy memories to replace all the bad that he has suffered through at just 10 years old. I can't imagine losing my parents and I am 37 and he has already lost both of them and lost everything that he's ever known and had his life completely shattered. Thank you all in advance!
