Get to Maryland

In a perfect world I wouldn't have to ask for help... But my 23 year old daughter has been diagnosed with scleroderma... It's terminal and no cure... My father died from it at 53... It's an auto immune disease... It's also called turning to stone disease... It goes from the outside in... Her hands are locked already... Affecting her wrists, elbows, knees, back and ankles... Her lungs and bowel are affected already as well .. we have found John Hopkins in Maryland... There is a whole day dedicated to this disease September 16.. we will learn so much ...we will be surrounded by people who are living with this and some are in remission because of this hospital... Her insurance doesn't cover any good doctors of course... We will be seeing a Dr while there too if we can afford it... This is hard for me to do but I just want my babygirl to live.... She's in so much pain everyday... It's no way to live... Anything would help....thank you for taking the time to read this and anything would help get us a little closer to hopefully helping her live with this.
