Crowd Funding For Cruise For Cancer Sufferer

April 22, 2015

Aiming to fulfill the dream of Jackie [Nichols] St. Peter, who doctors have said has a life expectancy of about 2.5 years due to cancer, an online campaign is hoping to raise $5,000 in order to give her a “birthday she can’t forget” aboard a cruise to Bermuda.

The campaign has raised $3,330 of its $5,000 goal, with the GoFundMe page saying, “Jackie [Nichols] St. Peter was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon cancer in the summer of 2012. Unfortunately the cancer was not found before it spread to her liver.”

“She is only 45 years old,” the campaign said, “The surgeon she had gave her a life expectancy of 5 years, almost 3 years ago, even with treatment.

“Although one never knows when her time will actually come, if the surgeon is right she has about 2.5 years left and no one knows how long she will still feel decent. Her family and friends pray the surgeon is wrong and she will be with us for a much longer time.

“There is a cruise coming up in May of this year departing from Boston going to Bermuda. My hope is that the funds can be raised so she can be on that ship with a little spending cash and enjoy her birthday at sea, giving her a wonderful relaxing, cancer forgetting trip and a birthday she can’t forget.”

    Don’t bring your life saving cannabis medicine if you have some. It will definitely be a trip you won’t forget. On another note would be a great gift though. Hopefully she can make it and bermudas people and climate help her live!

    Jackie needs to take a dream cruise to the US, to one of the Free States, and try some cannabis oil on that cancer.

    Not EVERY patient gets free of cancer within 6 months, but I grow cannabis, make it into oil, and GIVE it away ($thousands out of pocket for the power bill, soil, fertilizer, etc), and I see this stuff kicking the crap out of really tough cancers, every day…

    What’s to lose?
