I need to get to England Tonight

On Friday my mother in law, Valerie Johnson, collapsed and was unresponsive. She was rushed to the hospital. Her brain is bleeding and they said it doesn't look hopeful.  Jodie was called and was told to get to England ASAP. She's on a plane right now.
Jodie is  crazy close with her mom. Her mom is everything to her.  Every week for the last eight years they video chat to keep up with what's going on. The night before Val collapsed, Jodie facetimed her because we found a puzzle that she wanted us to look for and we found one. It was a brief conversation in the store, but we talked to her and she seemed fine. That would be the last time Jodie and I would speak to her.

Val has been so good to me and so caring. Over the years we too have become close. Everyone has these horrible mother in law stories. That's not the case with us. She's the best. I love her with all my heart.

Jodie wants me to be there with her. I want to be there for not only her but for my mother in law.  Jodie is a strong strong woman, but if the worst happens she will need me there. I need to be there. So I am asking all of you to help me get to England by tomorrow morning or at least within the next couple of days. 

My passport renewal and expiditing fee will be $200.00. The flight will be between $2000 and $2500. I'm not even going to worry about food and where I'm going to stay or any of that. I just need funds to get there. 'm never good at asking for help and I don't want to, but this is an emergency and it's important to not only me but to Jodie.
That's all I'm asking friends.  I'll try to make up every donation in some way.

Thank you all for your time.
