Help for Emma's Wishes

My beautiful friend Emma Darcy, is mother to 3 year old Sam and wife to her incredibly supportive husband Tal.  In 2019, Emma, was diagnosed with Inflamatory Breast Cancer.  She was 33 when she got this frightening diagnosis.   After further tests and consultations with her medical team, Emma was told the cancer had spread passed her breast to her bones and her diagnosis was now stage 4 Inflammatory breast cancer. This type of cancer is incurable and the life expectancy of someone with this diagnosis is an average of five years. Emma has faced her treatment, diagnosis and prognosis with an acceptance and determination like nothing you have ever seen.  She is determined that she will fill these next four years with as much happiness and laughter as she possibly can. As a result of the diagnosis and treatment, Emma is no longer in a position to work.  This has put considerable financial strain on Emma and Tal as they try to meet their day to day expenses, but also plan to make as many happy memories as they possibly can for Sam, in the time that Emma has left.  Emma’s greatest wish is to leave Sam with tangible memories of her when she has passed. I would like to start a GoFund me to help Emma and Tal bring Sam on a trip of a life time before Emma becomes too ill, but also help them meet their day to day expenses to offset the impact the loss of Emma’s salary.
