My Parents' Dream Wedding

My parents (mom and stepdad) are the light of my life. They mean everything to me, and they've done so much for me, and my friends. This is our chance to finally give back to them.

My parents met when my mom was 19, and my stepdad was 30, where my mom was co-owning a comedy club and my stepdad was the comedian performing that night. My mom was taken at the time, so they weren't able to make a connection.

Fast forward about 24 years after that night, my parents reconnected when a mutual comedian friend of theirs passed away in 2014. My mom was living in New York at the time because of her job and was looking for a place to stay in Boston, where the funeral was being held, for the weekend. My dad offered her a sanctuary, and the relationship sailed from there. They got engaged about two years ago, and they have been planning the wedding since the day after they were engaged. My mom has been extremely excited for this because she has been through some bad relationships in her life, and she's finally found the one man that truly makes her happy. 

However, due to recent health events, my family has come to some financial struggles and the wedding that they planned has come into jeopardy. My friends and I just want to do as much as we can to make this dream a reality for them. Sharing the campaign on your social networks (that they are NOT on) and/or any contribution is appreciated IMMENSELY.

DISCLAIMER: No one has asked us to do this... My two best friends and I heard that this was happening and just wanted to do something to help, because even my friends consider them a second family.
