Help Dad fulfill his dying wish of coming home

My father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the lungs, liver and rectum in June of 2020. He decided to start chemo and fight the cancer and was making some progress. Unfortunately,  on November 21st, 2020, he suffered a massive stroke which has severely dibilitated him and his likelihood of recovery beyond his current state is highly unlikely. He is still in the hospital awaiting transfer to a care facility and has no family in Arizona. His dying wish is to be in Florida with his family to live out the remaining days he may have left on this earth. I was planning on driving him home myself,, but have been advised this is not medically feasible.. Unfortunately his insurance will not cover the cost of the transport since they do not deem it medically necessary. The cost to transport him from Arizona is going to be $17,000.  My husband and I simply do not have the means to cover this cost and are swallowing our pride to help Dad fulfill his dying wish. Any contribution can help and we are most grateful for any assistance in these unprecedented times.
