To properly describe why this is so important to my family and I, first you may need a short background on my mother. She was born and raised in Argentina and is and has always been extremely family-oriented. She moved to the United States about 25 years ago to offer her family a better life when my father got a job as a Software Engineer here in Southern California. We are eternally grateful for the sacrifices she made to raise 8 children here in the US, but she misses her family tremendously and fights the sadness everyday that she may never get to see her parents before they pass, as they are in their late 80's and their health is very fragile.
I've enlisted my family's support to raise money for her passage and time away to be able to visit them during the holidays this year, but we are all struggling to come up with the entire cost of the endeavor. Anything you are able to donate would mean the world to my family and I, and especially my mother and her mother-land family. Thank you and bless you all for even taking the time to read this.
