We set out with the original goal of $3000 to send Laura on her dream vacation to Hawaii while she continues to fight cancer. We have already reached that goal. With everyone's generous gifts, we have enough for Laura and Dave to simply say "Let's go to Hawaii tomorrow" and the funds will be there. But, we are not stopping there. We are continuing to raise money to help Laura and Dave with the medical expenses that keep coming in. Laura's doctors do not want her working at this time and exposing herself to all the germs in the schools, so, we need to keep spreading the word and raise as much as we can to help the family out. We all agree how special Laura and Dave are to all of us. The kids want to surprise Laura and Dave with this gift at Thanksgiving so please keep it a secret. Keep up the good work everyone. I keep getting messages from the entire family saying how grateful they are for what everyone is doing.
