CrowdFunding promotion Help fulfill my dream of buying a new Dacia Lodgy Stepway to make trips with my elderly family

My name is Nancy Boey and I am a cancer survivor of breast cancer. I am 48 years old.

My battle for cancer was not an easy one as our all cancers. I had been off work for a year before I got the diagnosis of having breast cancer.

I am alive and thankful for that but have not been able to go back to work. Having had troubles paying for the cancer bill (which much of it was paid by me and my parents because their was a problem with the insurance) and high medical bills after the treatment, I was totally depleted of any savings I might have.

I had to sell my studio for a small return to help cover remaining debts.

I am now living with my elderly parents of 87 and 75 to help take care of them. I am living of a small invalidity benefit and have no current savings.

My current car is a second hand Opel Astra which has had its best days and can only be used for short distances.

I have always loved travelling, so have my parents. But because of our current life situations, neither of us are financially secure enougy to make trips.

My parents have both loved travelling but are now not in a position anymore to be able to do that.

Because of their ages, my current car, being an Opel Astra, is very hard for them to get into. And it is only used to do grocery shopping.

I can not get a loan anymore because of previous problems in paying off debts (in the aftermath of having had cancer).

I so much need a bigger and more comfortable car for all the reasons mentiong above. So that I, or we as a family, can make trips again, longer trips, more comfortable trips. Most of the time we are bound to the house because the money just isn't there to go places.

My battle with cancer is over, but healthwise, I am not able to go back to work. I am alive and thankful for that but being bound to the house weighs on mine and my parents' mental health.

For this reason I would be so happy if I would be able to afford a Dacia Lodgy Stepway. Freedom to move about and make trips with a comfortable car and not being burdened by financial issues, what a dream it would be.

I would be so immensely thankful that maybe this way, it would be possible to make this dream happen.

Thank you so much to all of you who read this, to possibly consider donating to this project. It would be amazing for me and my family that this could actually happen.

I appreciate you all to have taken the time to read my shortened story of my battle with cancer and my life of financial difficulties and health issues after. I need to do this for myself and for my elderly parents to give us the freedom to go places, see things, and not being burdened.

Kind regards,

Nancy Boey
