One last adventure with my mama!

My name is Alex & I have 2 children who are 2 & 4 years old. My mom has lived in California since I was 13 years old and I have only been able to see her 2 times in my adult life due to the distance between Nebraska and California. On Wednesday my mom got the call that she has a large mass on her lung and has stage 4 terminal lung cancer. My mom has never met my boys and as of yesterday she has been moved to Hospice care. I am trying to get enough money together to be able to take a trip with my children to California so they can meet their grandma for the first time. She also dreams of taking them to legoland and because they LOVE  playing with legos. Both of my children have medical conditions that also make this trip even more important not only for myself and my mom but for them. My 2 year old son aspirates liquids to his lungs & My 4 year old son has extreme asthma and allergies.  My goal is to raise enough money for our plane tickets. I would love to be able to take them to legoland but also to be able to provide their medical care  while we are there.  My youngest child requires thickener for liquids so having a little extra money incase we run out would be needed. I am hoping to be able to stay about a week to 2 weeks so that we can mark some things off the our bucket list of dreams. A few things we would like to be able to do is visit the beach together (neither of us have ever been), eat red lobster because it is her favorite restaurant, go to legoland, get family pictures done etc. My mom is in a wheel chair now so part of the funds I am requesting is so that we can pay a hospice/medical aid to go with us to ensure her saftey during these events.  I am a single mama raising my children on my own and I just do not have the funds to make this happen. I struggle with depression and my mom has always been my cheerleader.. it is so important to me to be able to make this possible for my children & for her. Many times before I ever had children she was the only one who could "talk me off the ledge"... Anything would be greatly appreciated to help me have one last adventure with my mama! I will be happy if I can just raise enough for my boys to go see her and to be able to give her a hug! Thank you for taking the time to read my story. God bless! ❤
