Help Father See Son with Cancer

In January 2018 my Fiance Sean's son Atticus (age 14) was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his left femur. Sean and I live in Bremerton, Washington while Atticus lives with his mother and sisters in Portland Oregon. The treatment plan for Atticus is multiple rounds of chemo therapy then limb salvage surgery followed by more rounds of chemo therapy. Since Atticus lives in Portland, his treatment is being administered at Randall's Children's Hospital. We have been to the hospital a few times to spend time with Atticus, but we just cannot afford to be there as often as we want to. Which is where you all come in! We need help covering travel costs to spend time in Portland, Oregon with Atticus while he is in the hospital. Sean and I both have full time jobs and our finances just cannot support overnight trips to Portland as often as we would like to go.  We  believe that it is important for us to be there with Atticus on every weekend that we can while he is in the hospital undergoing chemo therapy. We are asking for help because he is our son, we love him with all our hearts and want to be there with him as much as we can during this difficult time in his life. Any help would be greatly appreciated as we navigate this year long journey of watching our son battle cancer. The money will be used strictly for travel expenses: lodging, food, and fuel. When we reach the end of our journey any money that is left over will be donated to Randall's Children's Hospital. Thank you all so much!
