Travel funds from Phoenix to Chicago

My sister was diagnosed with diabetes shortly after the birth of her second son 6 years ago. She is now a brittle diabetic and has been experiencing a lot of insulin resistance and diabetic ketoacidosis because of it. She has recently been suffering from a blood infection and a lung infection causing her to be on a cpap mask in the hospital and having to send her home on oxygen. She is currently living near Chicago with the rest of my family, and I am stuck in Arizona.

I am trying to raise funds for gas money to drive back home to stay with my family. I moved to Arizona in hopes of finding a better job and had the opportunity at the time of the move, but I still have not been hired at a single job since I've been here. I graduated from college last summer and have been trying to pay off student loans on top of all of my other monthly bills. My father is disabled and my mother works as much as she possibly can in between hospital visits with my sister. I'm trying to get back to my family as soon as possible as I'm close to running out of my own money. Getting back would relieve so much stress off my whole family, as I could get my old job back and also care for my sister's children while she's in the hospital since they cannot afford a sitter. I'm looking to raise $500 for the 1800 mile journey home. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. <3
