Help get our veteran dad home

My dad retired from the Arizona Air National Guard/Air Force and wanted to move back home to Alabama. My parents left behind their adult children in Tucson. My dad has always been my moms sole source of money. My mom was diagnosed is dementia a few years back and now needs 24 hour care. January my dad had an accident which resulted in some brain damage. He has a hard time talking, can't swallow and is now on a feeding tube. He is currently in a rehab in Alabama and although his siblings are doing everything they can for him it not their responsibility. It's us, the children that are in Tucson. We need to get my dad home to Tucson via air ambulance. It's the only way they will let him travel. My dad may have a chance to rehab with my mom and his children together with him. My mom doesn't understand why she can't be with her husband. We are in need of some funds to make this travel possible. This is hard for all of us to ask folks to donate money although we know we are running out of time and need this to happen soon.  If you can't we understand and would love your prayers as we are a Christian family and know that God is with us through this trying time. As I drove down the road the other week ago, I saw a sign at a church that said "Don't worry, God has this". I believe we can make this happen!
