Amanda's Lyme disease treatment

32287592_1534758266917210_r.jpeg32287592_1534758302861957_r.jpeg Sadly shortly after our wedding in September 2017, my wife Amanda starting getting very ill with many bizarre symptoms.  It took 8 months seeing many doctors , specialists, haematologists/immunologists/rheumatologiststo try find out what was going on and weekly blood tests from December -August 2018 spending thousands seeing many professionals to try get answers. It has been a very distressing time for us . Unfortunately we have just had a chronic Lyme disease diagnosis after being misdiagnosed with many other autoimmune diseases. This is terrifying as the government and Medicare here in Australia don't cover any medical treatment costs as there is denial this disease is here in Australia even though thousands we have now met are suffering with no help from doctors hospitals or Medicare . We have had to move back in with family leave our apartment as we cannot financially afford treatment. Amanda also cannot work at the moment. The treatment cost is $10,000 just for 3 weeks treatment!! and unfortunately because of the late diagnoses and chronic stage she may need many on going treatment . There is no cure. We have no choice but to try get help and treatment to help prevent this attacking her brain which can lead to neurological devastating symptoms leaving her unable to walk talk or function. We need to start aggressive on going treatment in order to try get the disease under control and get our life back. If anyone can help we would greatly appreciate it as you can imagine with 1 wage we simply can't afford these on going medical costs. Hopefully one day Medicare will help! Until then people are left to suffer it's so disgusting and innumerable to turn away sick people.  We had plans after wedding to start a family and save for a house and for now everything seems to have turned upside down. Life as we hoped for is on hold. 
Any little help would be greatly appreciated x
the treatment she needs is on going hyperthermia along with Iv antibiotics and Iv bit c to help her suppressed immune system try to fight it
