Help Jason see the ocean!

Hey y'all. I am trying to raise money to get my brother to the ocean! He has only been once and he was about 7 at the time. This is what he is asking for, so I'm going to try my hardest to make sure he gets to go. A lot of you have asked what you can do..... and I'm asking now for help.... I hate doing this, but unfortunately we don't have the funds to make it happen. Mom has had to quit her job, so she can take care of him. I sold my motorcycle to pay for bills, we are tapped out.
This is my plan.... Take Jason to Galveston (I know, not a nice beach, but it will work) for a weekend Thurs-Sunday. I'm pretty sure $1500 would be enough to cover hotel, gas, food, and anything he would like to do while there. If you could donate anything, it would be so much appreciated. I absolutely hate that I even have to ask, but unfortunately that's where are right now. If you aren't able to donate, (which I completely understand) please just remember him in your prayers. Below is alittle detail of what's going on with Jason......


As most of you know, my brother, Jason Harrod has stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma (Kidney Cancer). It has spread to his lymph nodes, and his spine. In March of 2016, we lost our dad to Pancreatic Cancer, so it was a huge shock to find out in May, (just alittle over a year of losing dad) that Jason has Stage 4 Cancer. Jason had his right kidney and adrenal gland removed back in May. They said the tumor was as big as a football, it was wedged in between his liver and heart. They ended up having to repair both organs from damage done by the tumor. He has completed radiation. They did it on his spine, knowing it will not cure him but to prevent him from becoming a paraplegic. He has started chemo, also knowing it will not cure him but prolong his life a few months. The doctors said if he can handle the chemo and if it works, he has about a year left. If it doesn't work or if he cannot handle it, he has about 6 months. He has started the chemo, but he has been very sick, and has been in the hospital twice since starting it. As of right now, he is not taking the chemo and he is feeling good. This is why I thought now would be a great time to go see the ocean! Lets do it before, he gets where he is not able to go. We love all of you for all of the prayers and support you have given. We truly have the best family and friends.
