My Travel Story

by: s m Start Date: Sep 22, 2016 - End Date: Jun 21, 2017
My mother is one of the most selfless and generous people I know, maybe to a fault. Some people saw we get illness to teach us some kind of lesson that we couldn't learn any other way. I don't know dont know if I believe that, but certainly the one lesson my mother really needed to learn in her life she learned through her illness. She learned how to take care of herself.
In 2011 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was currently living in India with my then boyfriend and she was there visiting. She started suspect something was amiss with her body and recieved the diagnosis.  At the time we had planned a trip around India and Southeast Asia. But after recieving a mastectomy she returned back home to colorado so she could recieve chemo.  One thing that kept her going through the fatigue, naseau and pain of chemo was the idea that we would be able to go back to Asia to complete her dream trip.However five years later this has still not happened. Medical bill and the discovery of a tumor in her rib has prevented this dream from coming true
In September 2016 we got the great news that the tumor is gone, and besides keeping the cancer at bay there is nothing my mother would like more than to Celebrate her current lack of cancer by completing her dream trip and returning to Asia. 
I want nothing more than to make this dream of her's come true. I want to show her how much I love her and celebrate how thankful I am that she is doing better. I also think the trip would be restorative and healing as the past 5 years of been very emotionally tolling,

Any help would be greatly appriciated. I don't expect to recieve the full amount. The total is the maximum amount my mom would need. I have some money saved that I will use for my part of the cost.
