Aaron's Hardship

It hurts me to say this. But, I have been hit with terrible news. One, that any parent dreads to receive. I am pleading as a helpless mother for your help to make it possible to be by my son's side. My husband and I are both retired and on a fixed income and are in no way financially set to make this journey. But we need to get to him as soon as we can.
My youngest son, Aaron, has been in a tragic and horrific burning accident. He's been severely burned on 70% of his body. His upper body, arm, hands, front thighs and back of his legs have 3rd degree burns. He is in ICU and in severe and excruciating pain. He's in a touchy situation. He's allergic to some of the pain medication they're giving him to ease his pain. Which makes a difficult situation that much more difficult and stressful. He's vomiting, and barely able to keep any liquids down. And just found out there are kidney complications.
He moved to Oregon to be closer to his daughter Abby. And be an active father in her life and he has done so. He had a stable job and worked hard to do his best to provide for her. Along the way he met a beautiful woman, Amy, who welcomed Aaron and his daughter with open arms. Along with her own daughter Morgan they made a life together as a family. Things seemed to be falling into place. They were able to purchase a house that they called home. Then a few weeks ago they discovered they were going to have a special addition to their little family. They found out they would be expecting twins. Everything seemed to be great. Then this tragic burning accident happened. Now, my son is barely hanging on but has some serious health complications compounded with the obvious.
I'm starting a GoFundMe account to try to help with the financial burden for travel expenses and to help my son's family that has now become a stressful thing to endure. I am pleading/begging with you as a parent to help me get to my child who I desperately need to be with and clearly needs his family by his side.
My family and I would like to thank you in advance for all your help.
