Aaron and his long time love Sandy Johnson were able to get away by limo to the Sheraton in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Aaron unfortunately was too ill to to fly so Life Is Good No Matter What had them picked up by limousine and taken to the hotel where they were treated like royalty. Aaron and Sandy stayed in the Presidential suite while enjoying room service. It was their first time in a limo. Aaron leaned over to Sandy and said, “We’re rich for a day.”
Life Is Good No Matter What left a $250 Walmart gift card at the hotel for the couple. Aaron spontaneously took Sandy to Walmart, where they bought each other wedding rings and made vows to each other. “We’ve been together 22 years and never got married, Aaron said. “We decided we had the honeymoon, so why not do this? It was something special for the two of us,” Sandy added.
Maria was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer in September 2017. This came as a complete shock to her and her entire family. Maria went through countless treatments and a surgery. On Christmas day 2017 she was able to go home after her surgery to spend time with her family. At the time her husband Phil was looking for a new job and the two of them began discussing how they should take their four children on a much needed vacation in the summer of 2018. After this discussion they realized finances would be strapped with hospital bills. They heard about Life Is Good No Matter What through a friend and decided to apply for an escape.
Life Is Good No Matter What was honored to be able to send Maria, her husband Phil and their four children to Disney in July 2018. This amazing family knows how to live life and enjoy their time together. They did everything from Harry Potter World to the Beach as well as the fun and unique food Disney has to offer!
Chris and Stephanie have been married for almost twenty years and have raised two twin daughters and a son. Of his wife, Chris writes, “She is my life’s blood, and the who keeps me strong. She keeps my spirits up, can keep me laughing when I would otherwise cry. She is my hero. There’s no one in this world I love more.” His dream is to tour the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, have dinner on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, visit the JACK Casino, and dine at Morton’s. “This would mean a lot to me because it would allow me to create a lasting memory with the woman I love most. I hope it can be a time we can escape cancer.”
It was incredible, amazing, unbelievable. Words just cannot describe how wonderful our Escape was. And the Ritz-Carlton’s French toast was best I have ever had!
Mike Emery was 10 steps ahead in preparing us for every venture. He is a genuinely kind man with a big heart. By the end of our Escape, he felt like family. Thank you Mike!
Thank you Life is Good No Matter What for this amazing opportunity. We are humbled and our hearts are full.
We thank JACK Entertainment, Morton’s The Steakhouse, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum for their donations toward this Escape!
