Family reunion

Reuniting a family

My story
Hello my name is J.C. I'm an American citizen living in London with my family, I was forced to leave my country as my wife was deported with no consideration that she was married to an American citizen and had a child at the time. It's been 7 years since seeing my family we've had a daughter in that time and my family hasn't seen my son in 7 years( he's 9 now ).

The reason for the campaign
My cousin is getting married the 29th of July,  he's really more like a brother to me, I would love to make it to the wedding but at the moment cannot afford to go. Due to health issues my wife was not able to work due to depresion, anxiety, social panic from what we've all been through.  I can go with the children  but due to the deportation my wife cannot go to the states till 2019 ( a 10 year ban was enforced when she was  deported ) 

How you can help
Anything you can donate would be appreciated, the tickets are a bit expensive and would not be possible if not for the generosity of my friends, family and complete strangers.As I'm the only one working in the household it will be financially trying for me.
