The Darnell Cancer Battle Fund

My dad was diagnosed with brain cancer in January 2014. His diagnosis is a Grade 4 (that means really bad) Ganglioblastoma. To say the least - we are all in shock. This is brain cancer. Bad. Ugly. Aggressive Brain Cancer. There, I said it. My dad has brain cancer. This has thrown us a huge curve ball in life. I have always wanted to treat my folks to a vacation in Hawaii to pay them back for my teenage years (lol). Now, it can't wait until I have "enough money". This needs to happen NOW. My dad has maybe a year to live. If he is really lucky (and we are praying for this) he will get 2 years. The reality though, is that we need to make this happen; Because even though he MAY have a year to live, we have a limited window where he will feel well enough to travel. He has always dreamed of taking my mom to Hawaii and seeing her wear a grass skirt. I'm not sure if my mom has the same vision, but we all have the same goal - to help my dad live it up in the time he has left. We need to raise money for plane tickets, a condo for a week, a rental car, food, luau tickets, a fishing trip and whatever else my dad wants to do.  I will not be telling him no to ANY of his requests...(my mom gets to do that). PLEASE support this cause, support ME, my family, my dad. Thank you all so much.  This means the world to my family.
