Help my daughter with a Traumatic Brain Injury

My first born, right after her 21st birthday, was involved in a horrific car accident which has resulted in a Traumatic Brain Injury. Due to the severity of her TBI Casey developed Bipolar disorder, with fits of Mania, anger or severe depression to the point where she has tried to eliminate herself from this earth.
Also, associated with her TBI is delusion where reality is uncertain and those with ill intentions easily prey upon the weak.
 
Her accident was so traumatic that she was not expected to survive and discussions of removing part of her scalp and drilling into her skull to remove pressure ensued. Casey remained in a coma, was intubated, and received nutrition through feeding tubes which kept her alive for months on end.
 
One miraculous morning she opened her eyes and slowly progressed from there. Casey needed to re-learn EVERYTHING again; how to swallow, how to talk, how to walk, get dressed, and feed herself. Unfortunately, there are very limited services and or resources to assist those with a Traumatic Brain Injury and unless you are extremely wealthy to afford a private care facility, many TBI patients end up homeless on the street, in jail or worse.
>
> In seeking help for my child I came upon a rehab treatment center in Florida that specializes is assisting those like Casey. They offer intense therapy sessions including advanced treatments like Neurofeedback Testing, Brain Mapping and Neuro-Science for trauma. This will help her to retrain the brainwaves to function normally where the brain learns to self-regulate and possibly maintain a normal life.
>
> This is an expensive endeavor and one that I cannot financially endure on my own. This treatment center has been extremely successful for others and it will equip Casey with tools that she needs to get her life back after many years of hardship.
>
I am asking for you to help a mom, save her daughter's life by providing any size donation which is greatly needed and appreciated. It is imperative that funds come quickly because of the severity of her injury that needs to be addressed as soon as possible for it to work effectively.
>
> I implore you to build an awareness towards Traumatic Brain Injury patients as it affects well over a million people on a yearly basis and is all consuming financially and emotionally for so many families. There is not enough government resources in which to assist those in need regarding brain injuries.
>
> Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults in the United States. Each year an estimated 1.5 million Americans sustain a TBI. As a consequence of these injuries: 230,000 people are hospitalized and survive.
> Many loved ones that do survive are left with severe cognitive or physical disability and struggle daily for a sense of normalcy.
>
> Eternally grateful,
