Help Julie's Recovery/Rehab process

Hi! My name is Juliette Rodriguez and I was diagnosed with a rare form of MS called Devic's Disease about 10 years ago. I haven't walked in 8 of those years.  It's been very frustrating especially when you're a young independent person and all of sudden you can't even get up to reach for something thats a foot away. It also has been very difficult on my parents to see your only child one day walking/exercising/ driving/dancing you know just trying to reach those important goals in life. To then 72 hours later your life to a 360 turn but upside down. And now they need to help me practically in everything. (And at times I feel guilty mixed with lots of frustration, desperation)Anyway; I've been on many different medications including alternative medicine to see if the'd help. But there's no cure for this rare (stupid) disease. The only thing that the medication (Retuxin) is doing right now is keeping me stable. Now just a few months ago my life just got harder. My mom past away from a brain aneurysm that she didn't know she had. So now it's just me and my dad so frustrations are now a lot bigger.  Now my friends are trying to help as much as they can. So one of them have gotten in touch with a Neurologist that is treating people with stem cells, yes its a clinical trial but it's a trial that actually works. Not everyone qualifies, but  fortunately I do. The way the treatment is started is by doing minor lipo suction around your thigh or love handles. Next they separate your Cells from your Fat and give the Cells right back to you via an IV,  aerosol and they inject the rest in the area where you have more damage. In my case the spinal canal. The whole thing takes less than 5hrs. The unfortunate thing is that insurance doesn't cover it. That is why I'm turning to social media for some help in raising the funds that I need to get this treatment done. I don't like asking for money but right now I feel like I have no other options in order to get this done.
If you are a generous person  enough to help me raise the funds and reach my goals to getting back to normal. I will greatly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!

 Thank you so very much and may god bless you!
