Amy's needs/medical expenses

Amy has been battling an unknown illness since September 2013. After many trips to various specialists, we are faced with needing  to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and her insurance does NOT cover out of state. I have not been able to return to work since she started getting really bad, so we have no income flowing in. Many of the specialists are a drive away. She has seen, GI, Rheumatology, Immunology, Infectious Disease, Cardiology, and Neurology. Neurology referred her back to infectious disease who has turned her down twice already.  Her pediatrician has been talking to the doctorsat The Mayo Clinic. This fund is to help us afford her trip to the Mayo Clinic as well as her other needs.  We need to raise the money for the Mayo Clinic.  The cost for the flight and our hotel are covered.  Please consider assisting me in helping my daughter get better.

I pray for the day I see her true smile again, I don't hear her crying in pain, and she can return to the vivacious, spunky, happy, little girl she was. The day I don't have to beg her to drink fluids to keep her out of the hospital and where she wants to go outside to run and play without getting so tired. The day fevers don't plague our day and ALL of the symptoms are gone. A day where we don't need so much medicine to make her comfortable. A day she can return to school!   Please like our facebook page, Answers for Amy, as we continue on the exhausting journey!  
 UPDATE:  Amy has been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis and it is thought she may have a rare genetic condition call Fabry Disease, from a low test result she had.  Please keep it in your hearts to pray. There are still many more questions than answers.
