Hello there! My name is Jess and I am going to explain the backstory really quick before I get right to it. Since my mother passed away in 2015 I have been looking for a better life and to fulfill the promise I made to her, which was to return to school to become a nurse. However, my only issue was I needed to move out of the midwest to try and do things on my own, which I eventually did last year in February 2019 and I moved back towards the end of the year when I received a call from my grandfather, explaining that he would need some support around the house (seeing as my mother, and uncle who initially said they would help him, but both are deceased—my uncle being the last to pass in March of 2019). My last month in California one of my friends passed away and my sister who lived down the road from me has been having a harder time coping with his passing, seeing as this was the first man she ever loved. Our friend who passed away had to be one of the kindest souls I had ever met and he went above and beyond for others—to know that he is not here anymore still doesn’t feel real. To make matters worse, I informed my sister I was moving back to the midwest to help my grandfather (she does not share the same grandfather), which only brought her down even more. When I moved back with my grandfather, I unfortunately was limited on what I could bring with me on the plane and my sister is holding onto my mother’s ashes for me until I can return to pick them up. However, the reason why I am really asking and hoping for a miracle to get out there now is, our friend who passed away will be having his celebration of life at the end of the month and because of a car accident I had on the 18th of December with a deer, I had to resign from my job which has set me back, seeing as after care aide training I won’t officially start working until next month. Initially my goal was to have the money at bay for when I got the call about the funeral and use it as the time to be with my sister to console her and pick up my mother’s ashes. At this rate anything will help, I am looking at plane tickets costing me around $250-300 for a round trip, a car rental being another $278 (This is including the security deposit) and gas and food for the trip. Please if anybody is willing to help that would mean so much to me, I really wish I could have made this endeavor on my own but I did not unfortunately.
