Help for medical tests and medicine

Hello friends and family,

As most of you know, I am a single mom from Canada living in Panama without family, but with an amazing group of friends. Yesterday I woke up and had terrible tremors in my hands and arms and was unable to use my hands. I went to the emergency  but because I have a new insurance policy  nothing is covered. I did basic blood and got an appointment with neurologist who insists I need tests as soon as possible for a diagnosis. I can't afford the tests  and I am already on some medication which is very expensive and unfortunately there is no way for me to pay for these expensive tests here. Yesterday for basic consults, blood tests and medicine I am taking for neurological disorders  I already had to spend 300$ US and the next steps are the other more specific exams that are simply out of reach for me at this point in time. So, I call upon all of you, if you can, to please help with a little something. Please do not feel bad if you can't, positive thoughts and love are also very important. I thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity and if I surpass my goal I will save the money to buy the medicines I will need in the future or pay it forward in some way to others that need help! Have a fantastic day to all and I appreciate anything you can help me with.
