Excessive Cancellation Fee

Flight Confirmation No. LNOLRL (Leslie and Andrea Heard) from Houston to England
We cancelled our flight due to Corona Virus and impossibility of flying during shut down. Cancellation fee charged of $450 for each way is excessive. I understand per ticket cancellation charge, but to pay $1,800 for two people is totally too much. Please review our situation and let me know if there is any way we could get a break on this devastating charge to cancel a flight that due to no fault of our own, we could not take.
