Bring a Veteran's family to the U.S. to visit

Lee Golden is a WV native, currently living in Milton, WV. He served in the United
States Army, serving a tour in Germany. While in Germany, he married and was blessed with a daughter. Upon returning to the U.S., he was returned to active duty through the Reserves and served in Desert Storm. When he returned home to the US, he lived civilian life with his wife and daughter. Not finding success in the job market, Lee decided to re-enter the military life and enlisted in the United State Navy. During his time in the Navy, he divorced, and his ex-wife returned to Germany along with his daughter. He served in the Navy until being injured and received an honorable discharge. Due to financial reasons, Lee's daughter has returned to the U.S. to visit her dad only once in the last 20 years. During this time, she has given him two grandsons that he has only seen through Facetime. Within the last year, Lee's injuries from the military have worsened, and he has been diagnosed with chronic lung disease and recently has been given 12-16 months to live. He receives in-home care provided by the VA, and is currently on oxygen 100% of the time. At the top of his bucket list is seeing his grandsons and daughter in person. He cannot travel due to his illness, so his daughter and grandsons would have to travel to the US. He is asking for community help to lesson the financial need of bringing his daughter and grandsons to the US to visit. Any help is appreciated, and it would fulfill his wish of seeing his grandsons. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read his story.
