My Travel Story

by: scott sanders Start Date: Jul 24, 2017 - End Date: Nov 14, 2017
This could be the last family vacation with my wife and daughter. I was diagnosed with ESLD (end stage liver disease) March of 2016, while my liver and kidneys have not shut down as of yet my doctors tell me it is only a matter of time before organ failure. I am currently going through testing for organ donation but the list is long and my blood type is not very common making donation chances slim. While I feel pretty good now I will start to feel the effects of my illness  starting with edma (swelling of the legs and fluid build up in the abdomen) loss of appitite, fatigue etc etc.
My daughter just turned 16 in December and we are trying to figure out a way to go to Florida to give her some sence of normal before health starts to go down hill. at this point seeing her graduate is looking questional at best but I'm trying to stay optimistic about it and give them as much quality time as I can. I do have a good job now and my wife is a Kindergarten teacher but with medical bills upcomming I just can't swing it all on my own. we are trying to go in the off season before the holidays to keep costs down but travel is never cheap.
 I'm not asking for a free trip but a little help this time would mean the world to me so I can give my little girl a positive memory before her daddy gets too sick to show her all the good things in life and to spend some quality time with her family without the worry of what next, even if it is just for a few days.
