Please help with medical bills

My name is Shelly Libberton. I am only 46 years old. On November 21st 2013 my life changed. My passion is and always will be training and showing dogs. On Nov. 21, 2013 I became ill with an undiagnosed sickness which causes me to have ataxia & bi directional Nystagmus. The INIGand RETUXAN infusions have started helping me tremendously, but are very costly.  I am at a point where I fall only about once a week now. I am hopeful that ith these continued treatments I can return to a somehat normal life and get baack to competitive showing of my dogs,

I have been to Shands, Mayo,  USF, Tampa General and many other specialists with no  luck for a diagnosis or treatment plan that seems to work other than  very high doses of prednisone,  which is killing my body from the inside, out, My bones have become very brittle and break very easily, my skin is very thin and tears at the slightest touch. 
I love to show my dogs 
Some days are better than others. I am a fighter. I wont quit fighting until they figure out how to treatt me and get me better. I am no longer able to work and have had to go on disability. Insurance premiums are very expensive but I must keep good insurance,
My dogs love me  unconditionally and help me mentally get through each and every day. 

If you have a spare dollar to donate to my cause to help get me through the mental stress and depression that comes with the medical bills that keep piling up I would be forever grateful to you.

Life is what you make of it - live everyday to its fullest because tomorrow may be too late.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my story and for sharing with all your friends. There are many generous people out there and even $5 will help me toward my end goal.

Peace and love to all of you,
Shelly Libberton
