We're a bunch of Silicon Valley movers & shakers who are driving Days Away in San Francisco Bay Area. Welcome! We hope you will enjoy YOUR DAY AWAY!
"Paul and Susie - Married 27 years with 2 grown children Jim and Sue could have retired comfortably. Instead at the age of 58 they decided to dedicate the rest of their lives to the lives of children with disabilities. So they adopted three young amazing sons all of whom have disabilities. Sue went back to work to make ends meet. Constant meetings with doctors and schools don't phase either Paul or Sue and they resisted accepting a Your Day Away"""" claiming that others needed a break more than they did. But we can't think of anyone more deserving of a day away than Jim and Sue.
San and Thi - Their parents settling in to San Francisco after the Vietnam War, San and Thi met in school, fell in love, got married, and eventually opened a thriving restaurant in the heart of Silicon Valley. They were raising a family, and living the American dream. Until at the age of 6, their son started experiencing severe headaches and was soon diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was successfully removed, but cancer had spread. Years of dealing with the unpredictable nature of pediatric cancer has been a constant drain on the family. We want to help San and Thi recharge their batteries with a day away."
