Kelcie is my sister and Larry is her fiancé. On March 10, 2010 Larry showed me the ring he was getting kelcie to propose to her with in Disneyland that following week. That night, he got hit by a drunk driver and experienced a severe traumatic brain injury that he continues to recover from today.
He was in a coma for months with Kelcie by his side. She gave up everything to work with him and to help him get better. She even began working at the facility he went to so she could spend as much time with Larry as possible.
Now 3 years later, Larry continues to get better and was finally able to propose to Kelcie! He didn't get the chance to propose to her the way he had intended to, but we now have the chance to give this amazing couple the wedding and honeymoon of their dreams at their favorite place on earth, Disneyland.
Due to the accident, Kelcie and Larry are unable to afford a wedding of any kind and would never imagine that getting married in Disneyland would be possible, but with your help we can make this fairy tale dream a reality!
Now that we've made our goal!
Thank you all so so much for helping make Kelcie and Larry's dreams come true! Now that we have reached the goal, we wanted to make sure everyone knew what would be done with any extra donations!
Larry continues to get all the therapy he can afford so that he can make a full recovery. Kelcie and Larry would love to get him even more speech and physical therapy along with any equipment that could make his recovery that much more successful!
Thank you so much for your support thus far, and please continue to support them so they can truly have their happily ever after!
Here's a message from Kelcie and Larry!
"All I can say is WOW! When Mckenzie showed me the video and page for Larry and I, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we would reach our goal in just 11 days! I can't believe it! I am so thankful for all the wonderful people in our life! And thankful for all the people we know and all the people we don't know who took the time to watch the video and contribute to our dream wedding! I can't believe that Larry and I will be celebrating the happiest day of our lives in the happiest place on earth!
People have been asking what we would do if we surpassed our goal! I couldn't have imagined it before but here we are! Larry still continues to receive any therapy we can get and will continue after the wedding too! If we had extra money we would put it towards Larry's recovery! We are always looking for the best therapy out there to help Larry to keep getting better!
Thank you all for sharing our story and helping our dream come true! It's so overwhelming and wonderful, and we are beyond thankful!
Love to each and every one of you, Kelc and Larr"
Kelcie and Larry have a lot in common, but their most shared passion is their undying love for everything that is Disney. Getting married in Disneyland would be one of the most amazing experiences they've ever had, especially after everything they've been through together.
Unfortunately, this is of no little expense! Larry's many supporters including his family and ours would love to make this happen, but we simply do not have the funds necessary. This is where you come in!
Help us help Kelcie and Larry get married in Disneyland because they are a real life example of a fairy tale and of true love.
Getting married in Disneyland will cost Kelcie and Larry upwards of $15,000. The honeymoon, flights, and room expenses will cost upwards of $5,000.
Total, their Disneyland wedding/honeymoon will cost around $20,000.
With their inspiring story and your help I think we can make their dreams come true.
