The Raven Blue Cruise

My daughter, Raven Blue, was diagnosed two years ago with severe drug-resistant Ulcerative Colitis. All conservative treatment failed for Raven which ultimately led to Raven needing her entire large intestine removed. She has struggled with maintaining her weight and nutrition, as well as, really battling depression and anxiety throughout, not an easy thing for your average high school student. Now, that Raven is a lot more stable (not healed), I feel like Raven needs a break. She has been through hell these past two years and I want to do something extraordinary for her and her brothers, who have been there every inch of the way with her, a Disney Cruise. Of course, through the current economy and single dad-hood, it's going to be rough to get the money together to go. So, I'm asking family and friends and family's friends and friend's family to help, if they can. Nothing could be worth more than seeing my little girl smile, as she is my sun and my moon.
