Honeymoon, 37 years in the making !

A honeymoon . . . 37 years in the making! Please help me fund the honeymoon my parents never had! On July 2013, my Dad Kevin Hyun was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer which metastized to his brain. The statistics are grave: the 5 year survival rate for adenocarcinoma is 15%. This means, he has a 15% chance of living 4 more years in the best case scenario. But instead of focusing on gloom, let's focus on his amazing life! I assure you, Kevin is the coolest person you will ever know! He immigrated to America from South Korea in 1977 in hopes of the American Dream, fighting the pesky North Koreans, empty-pocketed with nothing but a glimmering wish in tow. He since married, raised a family of 3 - including 2 grandchildren (one being of Yorkie descent) - and retires in the sunshine state of Florida. One lesson my Dad always taught me was, "Life is about memories." So in his honor, on their 37th wedding anniversary this August 26, 2014, let's help him create memories to last for eternity! Give with an open heart! And please, spread the word. Your karma will thank you. :)
