The flight recipient is applying for a flight home because her Nanny is dying. It’s been only a month since finding out she has acute myeloid leukemia. The doctors said that she wouldn’t recover from this but that she could try and treat it with chemotheraphy so that there could be more time with her. However, after her first round of treatment they have determined that she is too weak to continue and they have now moved on to pallative care. The flight recipients Grandmother is so important to her family. She means the world to us. The flight recipient would like to get home as soon as possible to spend some time with her. Her family is obsessed with this woman, she is amazing. The flight recipient’s Dad and his siblings literally built their homes surrounding hers so all of her grandchildren grew up having Nan just next door. She was where the flight recipient “ran away” to when she would be upset. If she ran out of butter, it was just a quick run to “Nan’s General Store.” Her whole family all feel like they have such a special relationship with Nan. Nan has always been so healthy, always busy baking or babysitting. It has come as such a shock so the flight recipient just wants to get home to be there to support Nan and the rest of her family who have all been taking this news very hard. She would be forever grateful for the opportunity to be home during this horrible time.
