Making a last wish come true

My step father was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in March of 2014 without any warning or notice and skipping stages 1-3.  He has not smoked in 15 years so this came as quite a suprise.  After going through chemo treatments regularly for about 6 months, his lung collapsed last week, with no way to re-inflate it and the doctors have told us that we have exhausted all treatments  possible, and we have to just let life takes its course at this point.  Last week they gave him very little time left to live.  His last wish is to go to Hawaii for a few days, as he has never been and always been somewhere hes wanted to go his entire life.  I would love to raise enough money to send him and 1 person of his choice (most likely my mother or my sister) to Hawaii for 4-5 days, and fulfill the last wish/dream that he has.  If you know Doug, you know that he is a very kind hearted person who would do anything to help someone in need.  Anything over the cost of this trip will be payed forward to the MuCASAMoo foundation, which is a non-profit cancer foundation that has partnered up with us to help make all of this possible, and who has organized charity events besides this fundraiser to help raise additional funds.  And the money will be used to help other people who have a wish similar to Doug's!!  I would like to thank everyone that helps to contribute to making his wish come true and God Bless each and every one of you who even takes the time to read our story!  Thank you!
