Brenda's Getaway

Hey everyone, 

Thanks for taking a look at this go fund me for the McNichols family. For that past two months now I've felt pretty helpless. I've got two dear friends of mine literally going through hell every day. Brenda was diagnosed with breast cancer in late October of last year. Initially her prognosis looked very positive, and her doctor thought he could cure her with surgery and radiation. Don't let me downplay that treatment - it's still horrible, but better than others. Unfortunately after the surgery they found out that the cancer had spread, and the treatment needed to get more aggressive, and she would need to start chemo therapy right away. I hope nobody ever has to go through what Brenda has been enduring over the last month of chemo, and what she will be going through for months to come. Watching people I care about go through this makes me want to help them. Fortunately they have great healthcare that is taking care of the medical bills. I'm not asking for help with medical bills, instead I want to give the McNichols family a worry-free vacation. This amount should be enough to cover airfare and hotel, or a week's stay in an Airbnb on the coast (Brenda's Fav). Please keep this as a secret for now, and I'm going to give it to the family once we've reached the goal. Please leave some words of endearment on this page for Brenda to read.
