Help Me See My Abuela One Last Time

Hello family, friends, and supporters.

In short, this fund is to help sponsor a roundtrip to Panamá City, Panama to see my Abuela (grandmother) who is currently battling stomach cancer. You can support this cause by donating any amount of your choosing and/or sharing it with your family, friends, and individual network. All proceeds will go towards airfare, cleaning/ disinfectant supplies for my family in Panama, and financial support to lessen any future burdens after I've departed.

Cost Breakdown
-$1300 roundtrip tickets for my daughter and I
-$500 2 weeks worth of traveling expense
-$200 disinfectant supplies and essentials for our family in Panama (4 households)
-$1000 financial support for Abuela (hospital bills, medicine, groceries, incontinence care products, etc.)

My family and I are facing the heartbreaking reality that she may not be with us much longer. Panama has just announced that it will be reopening its borders on October 12th, 2020 for international travel for the first time since COVID-19 invaded our lives and forever shifted our norms. It is my heart’s greatest desire to visit my grandmother as soon as possible. I'd like to help care for her as she’s done for me so selflessly throughout the years, create lasting memories with her, and honor her by seeing her face to face for what could potentially be the very last time.

COVID-19 has placed financial hardships on me, and I'm sure many of you can identify with that as well.  Asking for financial assistance is especially harder when I know we are collectively suffering variously amidst the pandemic. With the urgency of this matter and the time constraints surrounding it, I know I will not be able to make this trip without your financial support. You can support this cause by donating any amount of your choosing and/or sharing it with your family, friends, and individual network. All proceeds will go towards airfare, cleaning/ disinfectant supplies for my family in Panama, and financial support to lessen any future burdens after I've departed.

I'd like to thank you all in advance from the bottom of my heart.
