My Travel Story

by: Summer Rain Start Date: Aug 1, 2017 - End Date: Dec 28, 2017
My mother is the most selfless and generous person know, perhaps to a fault. Some people say that we get illnesses in order teach us lessons that we couldn't learn any other way. I don't know if that's true, but if it is, then the lesson my mother has learned through having cancer is to take care of  her own needs before the needs of others. She is the kind of wife, mother and friend who always goes above and beyond what each of these relationship roles require. 


In 2011 my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.The diagnosis shook her and our family to the core. I moved back home in order to help support her through chemo until she achieve "remisson"

The years following the "remission" where still full of turmoil and struggle for our family.Those of you who whoes lives have been touch by cancer know the fear that can consume your mind about the disease, the worry that it will return. You try hard not to think about the "what if " scenarios, but they are always there, sometimes lingering fears, sometimes parylizing anxieties.

In the past 2 years my mother's cancer has metastised to small tumors throughout her body. She has had had to have radiation and chemotheropy and now oral chemo pills. The doctors are hopefull that the tumors will shrink and dissapear and she will be able to travel come winter. For now she is functioning well on the oral chemo and recovering from the intravenous rounds of chemo well. In Septemper 2017 she is do for a MRI can and we will know how well the treatment has work.

Needless to say after this round of chemo my mother is drained emotionally. I want nothing more than to suprise her with something that would revive her spirit and reinvigoroate her. I can't think of anything better than making her dream of visiting the beautifully country of Vietnam, a place she has always wanted to visit, come true.

If I recieve the funds I will accomanpany her on this adventure as the two of us are best friends. I plan to pay my own way so the funds are for her portion of the travel expense

We will leave in mid January 2018 when Colorado is at its' coldest and darkest. I am planing for us to go for 6 weeks, Flying into Ho Chi Minh and travel up north from there I know she would like to spend time in Da Nang and Hoi An. Please don't hesitate to give suggestions.

After all she's been through my mother is stressed and anxious. I know she would like to get some massages and other treatments to help relax and rejuvenate her body and mind. Perhaps she would stay in a spa resort for a week, I know there are some beautiful ones there. 


Please help me give this diserving women the trip of a lifetime!
