Hello and thanks for taking the time to click and read my story. I'll begin by introducing myself. The 1st pic is of me and my dad at my kindergarten graduation and the 2nd is my dad a couple wks before he passed. My name is April and I'm 34 years old. I have 2 children both of whom are boys age 7 and 17 years old. On June 23rd my father passed away with stage 4 small cell carcinoma lung cancer. He had just turned 62 in May. My dads cancer was terminal and fast acting so all we could do is put our faith in God and so we did and we prayed all day everyday but unfortunately it was his time to go. My dad knew he was dying and stated that he was healed rather it was here on earth or up in heaven. So he was ready even tho I wasnt. He stayed so strong and kept his faith through out it all. No matter what I did I couldnt prepare myself for when that time would come. The day he passed took everything from me, my heart, my soul, my whole being. I have reached the point where I have lost my will to live. Im pushing my loved ones away, I dont talk to my friends or anyone for that matter in fear of not being able to control my emotions. I just feel hopeless. The other night I had a dream about my dad and it felt so real that I didnt want to wake up, in my dream he asked me if "I remebered our plans about traveling the world together and all the fun we would have crossing each state line taking pics and being goofy" of course I did, that was our(my dad & me) dream to pack up and just go with no certain destination just pick north, south, east or west and head out. I feel that my dream was a sign from my dad trying to help me cope. So Ive decided to pull myself together and hope and pray that I can get the funds to travel the world in my dads memory and would greatly appreciate any and all help. The house I rent is being sold so I'll have to move soon, since I have nowhere to really go I'm hoping I can raise the funds to pack up and just start traveling all over the world. My dad loved the mountains and western type atmospheres so in his memory my trip around the worlds first destination would be somewhere like Montana or Colorado (my dad and I talked about going to one of those states first when he was still alive) I know alot of people make things up just to try and use/get things out of others but I can assure you I am not that type of person. I can show you documentation of my fathers passing as well as his cancer diagnosis along with other info if needed. If you can please find it in your heart to help I would be forever greatful and would love to keep you posted along my journey. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story. If you need any additional information or have questions feel free to email me at email@example.com this is also my pp email if you would like to help me. Would love to hear from anyone who can help make this possible for me.
