That reminds me of the movie Beaches with Bette Midler. I have a bucket list and would love to do that with my fiance who is a woman sorry if that bothers you but I think it is so awesome that you want to do that. Also my fiance has not been to disneyland and we wish we could go but money stops us. Talk to Disneyland and tell them about your condition and let them know that it is a wish of yours that you visit Disneyland because you have never been there. Also tell them about the beach I bet they will make your wishes come true.

vonnieboo52,

Have you considered posting your request on gofund me? You might get more response. Take a look at that website. You have to indicate how much money you need. Have you determined how much money you need for the trip? Also, from what I have heard, you need to send some persons (that you already know to your page to start out the contributions.)

May God's love be with you. Oh, and take a look at some of the prayers that I have written for others. God can bring you what you need for your trip to the beach. The prayers are posted on my public page. Scroll down.

We are looking for a variety if things. Everything from assistive technology, adaptive adult trike, home modification. We've made applications to a few places, and are still waiting years later. We have entered drawings for help , but unfortunately haven't been picked yet. We are on a waiting list in our home state for help... And are still waiting 7 years later. In the mean time she is regressing month by month.

Does anyone know of a list for young adults ? My daughter is 25. She was diagnosed 4 years ago with Phelan McDermid Syndrome. It is a genetic, lifelong , chronic syndrome affecting about only 1000 worldwide. We are finally meeting other parents at an international conference in late July in Orlando, Florida. I would love to take her to meet her first love, Barney, at Universal Studios. All the organization I've found so far are either for kiddos under 18, elderly, or disease specific. We have had 4 kiddos in the group pass away in their sleep in the last 4 years, they suspect it could be seizure related. I just want to make the most of this once in a lifetime trip.

I am looking for a friend of mine that is 41 with lupus and 4 masses in her brain. It is unknown if they are cancerous yet, but we will know that very soon. She has spent most of the last two years in and out of the hospital on a weekly basis. She is wanting to take her husband and two daughters to Disney, Universal and Miami to show them where she grew up before she is unable to travel.
