And does it really have to be a single itinerary? This sounds like the kind of trip where you can save significantly by self-transferring somewhere. For example I found this:
RSW - LAX on Alaska Airlines, departure 10:00am, arrival 12:40pm, $179
LAX - MNL on Philippine Airlines, departure 10:30pm, arrival 04:00am (+1), $577.10
Total fare $756.10
It does come with a long layover in LAX, but at least that guarantees that you can make your connection.

Who or what is Br? And eventually Mindanao would have been the final destination, we would have stopped in Manila for a few days before heading down. Mom is from Surigao

Slight problem, flying out of Miami isn't an option. It has to be RSW. Also, American Airlines isn't listed as a feeder for Philippine Airlines. Their only feeder in North America would be WestJet, however with the Canadian border currently closed that's not an option either.
