Send The Beneway Family to Disney

Hello Everyone, This is Mark Beneway. My daughter Amanda is battling GI Cancer. She is 25 years old. she was diagnosed a year ago and has been through two different chemotherapys. neither one has been successful. Surgery is not an option as her Cancer is within the lining of her stomach, intestines and lungs. She will be starting a experimental Chemo early next week and we just dont know if this going to work or not.

Amanda's wish was to visit Dinsney in florida with her brothers and her parents as soon as she got healthy. well we come to the point where we just cant wait any longer and want to try and make her wish come true while she feels decent enough to do so. She is a Disney and muppet fanatic. and her Mom and I would love for her to get her wish and spend time in a place she loves with her family that she loves and that love her.

Unfortunately, we do not have the money to even think that we could pull this off. Thats why we are reaching out on here to try and make this a reality. We live in such an awesome town and are surrounded by some awesome friends that have been very giving to us this last year. We really hate to have to ask for people to give again but we do not see any other way. It would mean the world to Karen and I if we could do this for her. 

We are trying to raise enough to fly all six of us to Florida, stay inside the resort and visit as many parks as possible. We need to stay in the resort as Amanda's Legs, Feet, Arms and hands are very full of fluid which makes it very tough for her to walk. She also cannot exhert herself much as her lungs fill with fluid which hampers her breathing. the least amount of traveling every day would be very beneficial to her.

Thank you in advanced to everyone who is able to help.

Mark & Karen Beneway
