In 2012 the flight recipient was diagnosed with stage 4 advanced colorectal cancer at age 39. Since then the cancer has spread into her reproductive system, throat, tongue, and aorta. The flight recipient has endured a 5 year battle of chemo, radiation, surgery after surgery, blood transfusion, and many many tears. Financially it has really impacted their family. This June the flight recipients oncologist gave her a terminal diagnosis. Unfortunately the lymphoceles in her aorta are not operable due to their size and chemotherapy is not shrinking them. At best her life expectancy is between 2 and 5 years. She has only seen her sister, Paula, once since Paula moved to Canada in 1986. Because of this the flight recipient has never met her nephews and she is now not able to travel. Her wish is to spend one last amazing Christmas surrounded by family including her sister and nephews.
