At 10 yrs. old Elizabeth was diagnosed with cancer, a battle which she fought gracefully, silently & obediently. In addition, She developed an extremely rare secondary condition called "Growing Teratoma Syndrome ". As a result of this syndrome, 17 yrs later, Beth is once again fighting for her life. While we don't have all the answers at this point, or a Tx Plan we will follow, she is in very serious condition and every decision that will have to be made moving forward will have extremely high risks involved.
For that reason I made the decision to start this gofundme campaign. After one of our more serious conversations, I promised her that I will do my best to help her experience her most passionate dreams, which would include visiting Alaska and RV'ing, regardless of what happens.
As her Mom, I want more than anything for her to experience these simple requests, so we know that she at the very least was able to live out her biggest dreams no matter what. I think everyone deserves that opportunity, especially when inflicted by serious illness before they were able.
So I am asking for your help to make this possible. Every single penny donated will be so very appreciated and will become a part of her journey.
Elizabeth is special, she is only 27, an she deserves this opportunity. She is the sweetest soul I know. If you already know her, this is apparent, and for those of you who don't, you would fall in love with her as easily as those of us who do know her have
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and in advance if you've chosen to donate and be a part of making something beautiful happen for someone beautiful!
Love & Peace, Elizabeth 's Mom
