Help with medical expenses

My name is Rose O Quinn. My husband Patrick and I wanted to set up this page for my niece Tara Warren, who is the daughter of John and Patricia O Quinn Warren of Goldsboro, NC. My 24 year old niece, Tara, has been diagnosed with black mold toxicity along with other infections. The mold has taken such a toll on her body that it has sent her immune system into total shut down which allowed room for other infections and parasites to take over. The mold has shut down her cerebellum entirely along with her frontal lobe. Not only is her brain failing her, but she also experienced extreme weight loss, unexplained rashes, fatigue, and many neurological symptoms. Her family sought out multiple doctors, but they were all failed attempts in finding out what was truly plaguing her body. They finally found an extraordinary doctor in Florida through her friend, Mary Lindsey, that specializes in mold toxicity and Lyme Disease. This facility, Sponaugle Wellness Institute, treats patients introvenously using different protocols to pull toxins out of the body. This tends to leave Tara with memory loss, brain fog, tremors, and body pain while she is killing these toxins off. We believe that this is the absolute best place for her to be. Dr. Sponuagle is a genius when it comes to brain research and he is one of the country's leading Lyme Disease and mold toxicity specialists. However, this type of treatment is unfortunately not covered by insurance. It is $3500 a week for treatment alone and this does not include the weekly charge for blood tests to check her progress which can be $800+ a week.They also have to cover rent for housing in a mold free environment. Tara is still waiting on certain tests to reveal if she has any other infectious diseases. As of now, she is fighting black mold toxicity, mosquito-borne infections, and parasites. Her family has no idea how long she will have to be at the clinic due to  the uncertainty of detoxification. The progress differs from person to person. On average, treatment usually lasts 6 to 12 weeks. Please consider helping Tara as she endures this unpredicted journey. Any amount will help and will forever be appreciated. If you are unable to donate at this time, we greatly appreciate your time in reading this story and ask that you share this with family and friends! Keep Tara and her family in your prayers! Thank you!
