Medical expenses for my brother

My brother Terry, 35 years of age is in need of financial assistance to cover medical expenses.  Terry Pridemore father of Kayla age 14 and Marissa age 11 is in desperate need of money to help get him to Mayo Clinic. 

Terry has been struck with a condition that is very debilitating.  This illness in the last two years has taken him from being a painter and tattoo artist to where most days he requires a cane or wheelchair to get around.  This illness is extremely painful and causes him to swell up.  He has not been able to work for the last year or more and due to illness he has no income.  He has been to many specialists and they have been unable to diagnosis what the illness is that has caused his symptoms.  His health is fading very quickly; he needs a diagnosis in order to be properly treated.

Mayo Clinic is his only chance, but because of lack of insurance he is unable to go there.  Mayo Clinic has said that with $5,000.00 they would be willing to have him come there and go through a complete diagnostic testing.  If he is able to get to Mayo Clinic due to the excellence of their facilities and doctors he will leave with a diagnosis and treatment plan. This might be the only chance to save his life.  If you are able to contribute anything it will be greatly appreciated.  There is no contribution that is too small.  Five thousand people at $1.00 each will raise what is needed, just as 100 people at $500.00 will do the same. 
Thank you in advance
