Fly my family here to help with illness

Earlier this week I entered an unexpected and unpredictable cycle of quickly worsening neurological symptoms and I need my mother and sister here with me urgently to take care of my children at times when I can't, to take care of me when I experience loss of speech and muscle control, to help with housekeeping and cooking that I no longer have strength to do and to take me to medical appointments. It looks like I may be heading towards a complete loss of mobility.

I am being seen by doctors and we do not know what is going on yet but we cannot wait for a diagnosis. My husband has been on a break from work so will soon need to be leaving home every day and we believe it may be dangerous for me to be alone at this time, especially with three children under five and it is also not safe for me to drive. With my mother and sister here, they can share the responsibilities so that no one gets burnt out and so that all bases are covered (one doing childcare while the other takes me to appointments).

Neither they nor we have the funds to pay for their travel right now so we are appealing to our family and friends to help us. We need to reach our goal urgently to pay for the travel expenses and putting their stuff in storage (plus GoFundMe fee); anything over that amount will be gratefully put towards their living and storage costs for the months they will be with us. Any amount you can donate is fantastic and we thank you deeply!
