~ GIFTED MAY 2019 ~
At the time of his trip, Ernie had already been fighting cancer for five years. He took chemotherapy every day and when his cancer moved into his bones, he drove 45 minutes away for radiation without complaint. All of the nurses agreed that he was wonderful to be around because of his cheery disposition. After a long and difficult journey he just wanted some time away with his loving wife. They stayed at a beautiful hotel where they got pedicures together, watched movies, and were reminded why they fell in love with each other in the first place.
“We laughed and talked and reconnected - it was perfect. We are so thankful to you for planning this for us, it was exactly what we needed. We honestly don’t even feel like saying thank you is enough.”
- Ernie & Kari
