Wife to help Husband travel to Lourdes

Pamela is married to Paolo and he suffered a debilitating stroke two years ago. Paolo only has limited motion in the right side of his body and paralyzed on the left. He is unable to read or write. While he understands a great deal of what is said, his spoken vocabulary, which once included multiple languages, is now only a handful of words. The Knights of Malta have a program which sends people on pilgrimages of healing to Lourdes. Paolo has been selected to go and all his expenses are paid by the Knights of Malta. 

Paolo cannot go to Lourdes on his own as he is paralyzed on his left side with limited motion on the right side. It would be ideal for his wife, Pamela, to go with him. 

The medical bills for Paolo's stroke have been extensive, therefore Pamela cannot afford to go to Lourdes with Paolo. 

We are raising $3200 for Pamela's tip (flight, transportation, and hotel) for her to go with Paolo to Lourdes.

Let's raise some money so we, their friends, can relieve the stress of how to pay to accompany Paolo to Lourdes. Pamela is always smiling - in front of her husband, her children, this proposal from the Knights, in front of life! 

Lets keep her smiling!
