Flight home for pop

Hi all, 

Firstly, it breaks my heart to even have to set one of these pages up, as I never thought I would be in this position. And I know everyone is struggling so much at the moment!

I work and live in Los Angeles but do not have a greencard, and cannot return home to see my family for the next 4 months as I'm having to save for flights. I live alone in an expensive city and have very little funds.

My father was diagnosed with lung cancer during Covid and I desperately need to fly back and see him in case anything happens. He is not well at all and starting chemotherapy soon, but has had two strokes and I'm increasingly worried about the time spent apart. 

Due to the work visa I'm on I will not be able to get back to my home and job in the US unless I travel to a different country after London and quarantine (slightly confusing I know). 

I am so desperate to get back home to my family and see him, and they don't have the money to put up for me, which is why I'm starting this page in secret as they wouldn't want the news out there. 

I feel embarrassed but hopeful that someone may see this and help us as a family so I can be reunited with my pops. 

I'm praying the travel restrictions soon ease and we will be together, but it's looking like another year and I cannot risk waiting more months. 

Thank you so much for reading and every little helps!! Sending my love to everyone who is hurting and struggling during these times. x
