Final farewell

As a last resort I am swallowing my pride in an attempt to see my older sister while she is still alive. She was admitted to hospice on Thursday, March 29th, 2018 and was not expected to survive Easter weekend. She is 49 years old and was diagnosed one year ago with stage 4 lung cancer. With chemotherapy and radiation treatment the disease progressed and has now metastasized to her brain, bones, kidneys, liver, stomach, and adrenal glands. She is riddled with cancer. She leaves behind 2 children, a girl-14 and a boy-12. Unfortunately I do not have the funds saved to get out to hopefully be there while she remains alive, but I would at least like to mourn in the presence of my family and attend her memorial. There in lies my major problem... I live in Duluth, MN and my family is in Sandwich, MA and to get myself, my son Jason, and Josh out to MA is about $750 per person and we just don't have the money. I am turning to you, my friends and family on Facebook and asking for ANY amount you could contribute towards this Final Farewell.
