Flying to See Father

My father Galgalo Boru recently learned that he is going to be blind for the remainder of his life. He is 74 years old. It saddens me because the doctors cannot do anything due to dead nerves and cells. The doctors have given up and told him that he will be going blind.

For me, it's very devastating and heartbreaking learning this sad news. I haven't seen my father for the last six years. My kids are devastated because their grandfather could never see their face again. They are asking me to take them for a visit but I am unable to fulfill their wishes due to ticket prices.

I am trying to take my children and myself down to see my father so he can see my kids for the last time. 
We are trying to leave June 30, 2017 and return August 25, 2017. Tickets cost $6,500 for our family. Since I am not working, taking my 5 children with me is so expensive. You might be able to help me, god willing! Any size donation greatly helps. Sharing my story with your friends and family can also make a big difference. Please use this link:
