Help a late stage cancer patient fulfill a life-long wish.

Hello. First I want to thank you for taking the time to view this message. I'll get straight to the matter. I am a stage IV cancer patient who is struggling financially (who isn't these days?). I live on a very meager social security benefit that gets me by enough each month to still live on my own. Although I consider myself a very positive and spiritual person, I have no delusions about my current medical condition. Long story short, I know that I have a limited amount of time in this life and there are a few things that I would like to do and see before my time is done. There are things that I know I'll never get to do and I'm OK with that. But one of the things that I absolutely wish to do is attend the college graduation of a close family member in Pennsylvania. I have promised since she was a toddler that I would be there in person when she got her college degree, and God willing I still want to see this and celebrate it with her. The problem is...I don't have the funds necessary for the trip from Houston to Pennsylvania as well as lodging, food, etc. I've gotten offers from family and friends (God bless them all...they do what they can), but I am not close to being able to accomplish my wish. So I now ask for your help. I have done very little in the past two and a half years except battle this dreadful disease. I haven't had a lot of enjoyment out of life during this time. My financial situation doesn't allow for much. My only "trips" have been to and from the hospital every other week. So this trip would mean so much to me on so many levels. I really need your help. Any contribution of any size will be greatly appreciated. I can verify any necessary information regarding my identity and condition. Thanks again.
