Help Jeff fight muscular dystrophy

Jeff has been dealing with chronic pain for two years now. Doctors believe he has a form of muscular dystrophy. USF hospital in Tampa did a biopsy on a muscle in his right shoulder and results came back inconclusive. We paid for biopsies out of pocket due to Humana being a crapy insurance company. Fast forward a year we found a different doctor because drs at usf just kept him loaded up on sterroids and said there was nothing more they can do. We started going to st Anthony's where we found out the Tampa hospital did the biopsy on the wrong muscle that's why we have no answers. The new insurance company will not pay for the genetic testing he needs because Tampa messed up the biopsy so it's now deemed as a not needed test. Tampa told insurance companies there is nothing wrong. So now we have to pay out of pocket for this test so he can be diagnosed so we can get him the surgery he needs. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. We have been paying for tests and hospital and Dr visits for 2 years now and have ran out of money. Jeff can no longer work due to the pain he's in and the fact that his arm does not work right and he can't lift things anymore. We have 3 amazing children that love their dad and we just want the surgery he needs. We appreciate any and all donations please share.

Just found out exact pricing and the Drs were wrong it's going to cost way more then what they thought. Thank you for all continued dupport.
