Help Ali receive an MRI and Spinal Tap Testing

Ali is only nine years old which is still quit young for her small breed mix of Maltese Poodle. Our girls named her after the "Bachelorette" the year she was born and is more important to our family than words can describe. Her eyes are free of any abnormalities yet she has lost her sight in less than a week which is a strong indication she is suffering from Granulomatous meningoencephalitis, a disease of the central nervous system. Ali needs an MRI and Spinal Tap to confirm the preliminary diagnosis and rule out other potential causes such as a brain tumor, stroke or unknown brain injury.  Time is of the utmost importance as the earliest possible treatment will stabilize her a with hope may reverse damage that has been done. Any donation of the smallest amount would be greatly appreciated
