Please help me fulfill Adams last wishes. Thank You

Adams Last Wish List

My son Adam was diagnosed with a 2 FOOT Pilocytic Astrocytoma Tumor inside his spinal cord on 12/11/08. Adam has gone through 6 weeks of Chemo, and everyday for 6 weeks of Radiation. The Chemo never touched the tumor but the radiation did stop it from growing up until about a couple of weeks ago. Adam and I got word that the Tumor is growing again. We have been told Adam has 5 months or less if this new Chemo treatment does not work. Adam is in pain everyday which is controlled somewhat through medications but is never fully comfortable. Adam has learned to live with it, with some days being worse than others. My son came to me the other day with a piece of paper and I asked "what is this?", Adam says "this is my bucket list mom". My heart jumped up to my throat. My son was an athlete, from playing lacrosse, football, swimming, water skiing, and snowboarding to mention a few. After graduatuating High School Adam became a laborer through one of the top construction companies in NY. One day he was moving something heavy and he felt a pop in between his shoulder blades. Drs. say this is what brought out the Tumor. We treated it as if he pulled a muscle. When Adam got laid off he joined the Army. While at Fort Benning, Georgia as he was going through basic training, his pain severely increased fast. He finally was sent to medical where they were surprised to find such a curviture in his spine. They said he was to high of a risk to breaking his back with some of the jumps they have, so they had to discharge Adam 2 weeks before graduation of basic training. I cant believe that he got as far as he did in basic training with such a large tumor inside his spinal cord. This is the perfect example to show you how much of a fighter my son Adam is. My son has come to terms with what is happening now and wants to live everyday to the fullest. I am asking for your help in order for Adam to be able to fulfill the things on his list. A few of the things on his list is to do some traveling, helicopter ride, road trips, to see the ocean, go to the Zoo, Have one of our picnics together, rent a sports car for a day, go for a boat ride, go on a cruise, those are just a few things to mention. Adam is my only child, and I want to see that smile forever on his face everytime we achieve one of his wishes, and scratch it off off his list when it has been completed. Please help me do this one last thing for him. Adam is all I have. I love you Adam
