This trip is about a promise that I made and will keep for my daughter.
Here's the back story...
After a 7 year battle with Brain Cancer my daughter Kelsey was taken from all of us. As she traveled this journey I would often refer to what she wrote about what she hoped for her future. Kelsey didn't like the idea of a bucket list but during the last 2 years of her life she and I discussed it often. The most poignant discussions were around her young family and the adventures she would miss. When discussing these adventures I asked where do you want to go?
"Oh mom so many places" she would say. When I asked to tell me where we began a list. Then when I had a list that she felt was complete she said, "Do you promise you will take me there?" and I promised. This fund is to fulfill the promise.
In September of 2019 I am planning on traveling to western Europe with Kelsey's ashes to make good on that promise. The funds will be used for transportation, lodging and food during the 8 week trip. I will have a backpack, Kelsey's ashes and a map to meet the list of countries. Starting in Ireland, all the way to Spain and ending in Iceland it will be the last greatest gift I can give my brave beautiful daughter.
Please follow my blog as I travel. I will post it here as it is established. The support will make it possible for me to fulfill this journey for Kelsey. I am go grateful for all of the support you have given my family over the last 7 years. Join me if you will in creating this last grand adventure for Kelsey and all who love her.
