My Mom has strokes and Auntie has Cancer, both love to travel. We are raising money for their comfort. Any support is greatly appreciated.

I am the daughter and neice of two handicap adults. My Mother has strokes/seizures and had breast cancer 2 years ago. She had her first stroke when she was 22 months old. Her siezures went undiagnosed until she was about 14 years old.

She was taken out of High School and then at the age of 21, doctors told her she would not live much beyond 50. God has let her live 68 years now and has given my sister and I the previlege to care for her. Mother's strokes have left her legs partially numb, paraylized and unable to climb steps.

My Auntie has pancreatic cancer, diabetes, heart failure, kidney failure, and asthma. She came to live with us in Feb, 2012. She was not diagnosed with the Cancer until late August this year. When she came to me she would tell me every so often when getting into the car that her right front side hurt.

In Aug, 2012 she was unable to eat and enjoy anything. She started losing weight at a rapid pace. When she was admitted into the hospital, it was only two days later, we were informed that she had cancer. She lost her only daughter in 2009 with cancer.

Auntie can only take baby steps now and for the most part is wheelchair bound. She's been given 6-9 mths to live.

We like to travel and have a change of scenery a few times a year, by going to OK or AZ, as we have family there.

I'm looking to raise approx. $20,000 for the renovation of the passenger seats in my vehicle that would accomodate the entering and exiting by my Mother and Auntie. I may take them so they can enjoy life as long as they are here with us.

I will be glad to receive the much needed $$ to help pay for the special seats for SUV, but will glad also if up to $40K comes to me. I will with that money pay off the purchase of the SUV.

Thank you for reading my story and the donation that you give.
