My son's college graduation

My name is Rachel Vrudny, and I am a former teacher from Peachtree City, Georgia, currently living in an assisted living home in Brainerd, Minnesota. In  December of 2011, I suffered an acute ischemic stroke, paralyzing the entire left side of my body, leaving me disabled and unable to continue teaching. My son, Jeremiah, being a sophomore in  high school at the time, returned to Georgia to live with family friends until I recovered. It is now 2018, and I have been unable to recover fully from the stroke. I have not regained any ability in the left side of my body, and therefore have not been able to work. My son Jeremiah finished high school in Georgia, and is currently a senior at Georgia College & State University. I would very much love to travel to Georgia to see my son graduate from college, but lack the financial ability to do so. Your donations would be covering the cost of air fare, and a hotel room, as well as a caretaker due to my inability to perform certain tasks/travel on my own. Any donations are greatly appreciated!
