Send Daddy-O to Idaho

My dad (Glenn W. Martin) was diagnosed on September 3, 2017 with an aggressive and incurable form of cancer (Neuroendocrine Carcinoma - Stage 4) and was given less than 3 months to live without treatment. Cancer cells have also nearly destroyed his liver function making him ineligible for full Chemotherapy treatments. He is undergoing a lesser Chemotherapy treatment with the one medication that he is a candidate for, in hopes of fulfilling his two remaining goals in life: (1) walk his granddaughter down the aisle at her wedding in November, and (2) come to Idaho one more time. From the first time he visited in 1998, part of his heart has always been in the mountains of Idaho. Whether hunting elk or sitting on the back deck, just being in Idaho brings him happiness and peace. 



With his deteriorating condition, he is unable to tolerate a full day of commercial airline travel.  And since we don't own a jet, we are trying to raise money to get him to Idaho from 10/27/17 - 11/1/17 using a charter jet service.  



Any and all help is much appreciated.  If you know my Dad, you know what an incredibly selfless, generous, caring, and honest human being he is.  I don't think it's a stretch to say that everyone who knows him, loves him.

Please help us fulfill this amazing man's last wishes and let's get Daddy-O to Idaho one more time!

Thank you and please share!
