My Travel Story

by: Michelle Carter Start Date: Nov 4, 2016 - End Date: Mar 3, 2017
UPDATE: Jean has stated that while she woudl love to go see the play she feels that at this point of time it may be more important to go and visit her daughter and grandchildren. I am hoping we can figure out a way for her to do both. But, please let's get her to her family.

This trip is for a very special person. Jean Parks describes herself as."a chocolate & cupcake loving, computer & gadget addict from Boston, MA.". In reality she is so much more then this. She is a mom, wife, grandmother, friend and social media guru. She has helped so many people, myself included, with her knowledge and that is why I want to give back to her. 
This idea started with a simple post on her FB wall, " I have one bucket list item. I MUST go to NYC to see Hamilton! I must, I must!" 
I must say, the post made me ecstatic. In Dec. of 2014 Jean was given a devastating blow, she was told she had stage 4 lung cancer. With the help of some breakthrough drugs, she has been fighting since that time and one can only imagine how sick she has been. Though it all Jean has given this fight 150%. This is why I was so happy to see her feeling well enough to want to plan a trip. 
I would love to see this become a reality for her. Her and her husband/caregiver would travel by train to and from Boston. They would enjoy some lovely meals and the Broadway show Hamilton while there. 
If you follow the #teamgeekbabe hashtag you know what a special person she is. Let's show her how much she means to us.
