RENO, Nev., Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Given the diagnosis of stage IV liver failure with no hopes of a liver transplant, one Nashville couple is focusing on their time together instead of dwelling on the limited time they have together. Reaching out to the crowd, they are hoping to raise enough money to fulfill everything they have written on their True Love Bucket List.
Married for 10 years, Drew and Alicia began married life aware of the fact that Drew had juvenile diabetes and Alopecia Areata. Unfortunately, just two months after they were married, Drew became ill and started having grand mal seizures. He was then slowly diagnosed with even more conditions such as Celiac disease, IgA immune deficiency and Autonomic Autoimmune Ganglionopathy. Most recently, Drew was diagnosed with Buds-Chiari syndrome, a terminal illness that puts his liver in state IV liver failure.
Due to his previous autoimmune conditions, Drew was not a candidate for a liver transplant. His doctors have given him a vague timeline – months to a few years to live. What this couple did in the face of this last diagnosis, was both shocking and touching at the same time.
With an uncertain amount of time together, the Bookers decided to work on their "True Love Bucket List". They created a website where they have both made lists of things that they want to do for each other.
Quoted from their website, "Drew has been given a fatal diagnosis, but they are determined to spend every moment they have together fulfilling their true love bucket lists. The world says they should despair, but instead, this couple puts their hope in true love."
In an effort to fulfill their True Love Bucket List, Drew and Alicia have started an online fundraising campaign on MoveYourMountain.org. All donations made will go towards helping this couple cross items off their list like, "Kiss Alicia under the Eiffel Tower, go to southeast Asia and eat something really weird, go to a red carpet event together" and much more!
This couple is determined to enjoy the time that they have together, completing as much of their list as possible. To find out more about Drew and Alicia visit TrueLoveBucketList and/or help them achieve their campaign goal by visiting moveyourmountain.org/campaign/truelovebucketlist.
