Lisa from New York, New York

I want to attend my mother's funeral. Help me get a plane ticket!

I need help getting a plane ticket to travel to Atlanta and attend my mother's funeral service.


I am a 37-year-old single mother living in New York. Recently, on December 8th, 2023, I've lost my mother to Stage Four cancer after a long, emotional battle. At the moment, I am currently unemployed and I am preoccupied with grieving and my mother's funeral service.

My immediate goal is to travel to Atlanta, Georgia to attend my mother's funeral service.

I need help getting a plane ticket to travel to Atlanta and attend my mother's funeral service.

Meeting this need will help me tremendously because I will be able see my mom off properly and say my last words to her. It will also help me have closure and it would really help with the grieving process to be surrounded by other family and friends who also loved her. The only thing that is stopping me from attending her funeral is the cost of traveling.
