mom is passing and I can’t afford✈️

My name is Josea Norris im 27 years old and, I live in Florida along with my son who is 5. I had received some terrible news about my mother who lives in Washington State, she had been in a terrible motorcycle accident with a big truck and she was immediately airlifted to Sacred Heart and in surgery to relieve some of the swelling in her brain. The truck had failed to vield and when she was continuing straight he pulled out to turn, the picture of the incident was posted publicily and that was when I saw how big the truck was, It was a four door with big tires and when it hit my mama it took her into the grill of it and squashed her bike, the picture and the thought of the pain she was in brought me to my knees with tears rolling down. She rides a big red shiny bike so needless to say the driver in the truck was not paying attention at all.  She is now fighting for her life and I live half way across the United States with no money to buy a plane ticket to get to her. My mama is my rock, she has always been there for me no matter what. Her name is Holly K. Andersen, She spent 22 years of her life with the navy serving her country on an aircraft carrier, she was a E5 petty officer, she is a wonderful woman, an amazing mother, and a good-hearted person, or in my eyes she's my hero, my bad a$$ mama. She spoiled and loved her grandsons with all her heart. Her passion was riding her bike and sewing,  I fell in love with motorcycles because of her.  I'm not the kind of person who feels comfortable asking for help let alone asking for a handout but sometimes you have to put aside your pride to do what needs to be done.  So here it is, the plane ticket is around 1100, I wont have a vehicle so I will have to get a cab when I land. My son won't be with me so I will have to leave money for expenses with him. I will more than likely get a hotel because friends live hours from Spokane, and the hospital won't be good for every night. I'm trying to stay for 2 weeks so I would also be able to see my old close friends that I haven't seen since 2009, I lived in WA for almost 9 years so these are friends I actually got to get close with because of the military moving us all the time it rarely ever happened. My mom is currently on Life support and she is an organ donor. My oldest brother has been by her side and my stepfather is rushing home from his parents home in North Dakota due to his father passing recently.  I couldn't imagine not being able to go see her. I know that if the roles were reversed she would do everything in her power to get to me. So I'm doing everything in my power to get to her I've sold some of my electronics, and I cant get rid of my laptop because I'm going for my bachelor's degree in Business so I really need it.  Even if you're not able to help money wise, I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer, I would take a prayer over nothing. Thank you for your time for reading this and thank you for any donation you can give no amount is too small. You have a blessed day. 29926600_15264909020_r.jpeg
