My dad is 81 years old and has not seen his sisters for 10 years or longer. (I cant ask as its a surprise) Unfortunately because of medical conditions his sisters are not able to fly. My dad has had one wish his whole life and that is to visit them in Australia and Vanuatu respectively.
I really want to make their dream come true as my dad continued to work until he was 80 to support our family. I was a single mother with 4 children and of course my parents helped me significantly through the years. Don't get me wrong I also worked very hard to support my little family but there were times it was just too much for me. My mother stayed at home and looked after the kids while my dad and I worked.
My parents had been trying to save for their trip as it became apparent it was now time for my dad to retire, had the money but 4 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my parents stood by me, again. I haven't been able to work in corporate since I've been in remission and time after time when me or any of our extended family members have been in need my parents will still sacrifice for us.
Unfortunately on the 8th of April 2017, 8 days before her 28th birthday my oldest daughter passed away from a car accident and this has just been the final straw for my parents. They are completely devastated and don't know how to cope and the only thing I can think of to help them is to bring their dream to fruition.
Just recently my dad was told that he is slowly going blind as both his optic nerves are slowly dying. He has suffered with glaucoma in one eye for many years but this brings a sense of urgency now.
So, please may I ask for a donation, no matter how big or small towards this trip of a lifetime and making their dream come true. I want them to have enough money to fly to Sydney, Melbourne and Vanuatu and not have to worry about a penny.
Thank you in advance.
