Team Gleason’s motto “No White Flags!” is exactly how Sem approaches things as well!
After he was diagnosed, we decided to live life fully as much as possible. We continue to go on adventures by going on short road trips in our van around California, but due to Sem’s worsening condition we never thought it would be possible to go across the country to visit family in Florida! Sem did not think he would be able to see his aging aunt again but thanks to the incredible generosity of Team Gleason he was able to!
We did so much on our 9-day trip to Florida! In Miami, we visited our relatives – the main purpose of our trip. It was so special for Sem to see his aunt and his family at last! We walked (and Sem rolled on his wheelchair) through the Modern Design district in Miami. We spent a few hours in the beautiful Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and we went to the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach.
This trip was amazing! Thank you for helping us create priceless memories! It is clear how this trip gave Sem some strength and motivation to keep fighting his terrible disease!
Team Gleason! THANK YOU!
