Mission: Trip to Disney World

Jocelyn is a 9 year old from Bath, San Marcos, CA. Jocelyn’s journey began when her family took a vacation, but towards the end of the trip Jocelyn had developed a really bad cough.

Jocelyn was dealing with on and off fevers, and it was then when her mom made the decision to take her to the hospital to have her blood work done. They found out that she had a mass in her lungs that was pressing against her heart, and Jocelyn was later diagnosed with cell acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Our mission is to raise $10,000 in the month of May to send Jocelyn and her family on a camping trip to the Dinosaur National Monument in Jensen, UT.
