Elizabeth's Day at the Beach - would like to raise funds for relape ALL teen to enjoy a relaxing vacation with family.

Elizabeth is a very special person to me as is her family. T was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was 6 years old. She had treatment for 3 years and was in remission for 5 years. At age 14 she has relaped and has been going through treatments since. Not only has she missed most of her childhood, she is now missing some of the most memorable and fun years of her life - her teenage years. She is a beautiful young lady who has had to miss dances at school, has not been able to take her drivers test yet. Instead of these being her carefree fun years, they are instead laiden with painful treatments, worry, and depression.

Please help me with a little gift to help lift her spirits. She had been chosen by Lighthouse Family Retreat for an a beach vacation. All expenses will be covered when they arrive - it is the getting there which is causing a problem. Elizabeth's mom does not work as she has to stay home to take care of Elizabeth. Dad doesn't make enough to cover airfare for Elizabeth, Mom, Dad and brother. It would be great to raise this money for them so they can actually have a beautiful family vacation at the beach. They are in Pulaski, VA and need to go to Destin, FL. and are scheduled to leave (if they get the money for airfare) Aug. 29. It would be so appreciated and you would help make a young girl so overjoyed (and she so deserves it). Anything you can do to help would be so welcome.

Thank you!
