HELP SANDY VISIT VERY SICK FATHER !

Sandy has been living in the Netherlands since 2009. We moved here due to her deteriorating health issues. In the years past she has undergone several intensive operations due to complications from her Muscular Atrophy. She has had scoliosis corrective surgery and twice a girdlestone hip operation. Both these operations and her illness make it physically impossible for her to be able to "sit" upright in a chair. Unfortunately, the only option would be a business class ticket where she is able to lie down. Her wheelchair has also undergone extensive modification to adapt to her body. Currently, her father is very sick on Aruba. Sandy would like VERY MUCH to go visit her father while this is still possible. Would you please help us make her wish come true AS SOON AS POSSIBLE? WHERE THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

This is some additional information, just to be clear as to why we are aiming for such a high amount. Currently, the cheapest ticket available, October 29th to November 27th is approx. €6,301.00 for me and Sandy. Prices fluctuate and increase daily the longer we wait. I am her primary and sole caregiver. We are not allowed to make a downpayment and pay in increments, it has to be in full or not at all. To further compound the pricing issue, while on the island, Sandy's transportation has to be via a private company, due to the local public transportation not being wheelchair accessible. Thank you for your time and consideration.


UPDATE:  Unfortunately  we have not YET  been able to raise  the  funds  needed.  This  does  not  mean  we  are  giving  up!  But  also  we  have been  confronted  with  a very  sad  news.  Sandy's grandmother passed away last week on December  9th  and  imagine  her  pain  for  not  being  able  to reach  her sick father  and  now  her  grandmother  passed  and  she was  unable  to  say  her  goodbyes.  You  can  still  help  Sandy reach her  father.  I hope you do. GOD  BLESS  YOU  who  is  reading  this!
