Beth's Cleveland Clinic Treatment

Hello... I am a 30yr. old female who is trached and suffers from Hereditary Angioedema Type III(a gene mutation that causes my face, tongue, throat, stomach, intestines, and extremities to swell without warning), and Gitelmans Syndrome(a kidney disorder that causes my body to flush vital things such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin d, etc...)... After 18 long months of many hospitalizations, multiple times of being on life support, and a tracheostomy, I have finally been referred to the Cleveland Clinic... And I couldn't be more thankful!
November 5th was my first trip to meet with doctors, in hopes of a diagnosis and treatment... Thankfully, after months and months of patiently waiting, I finally have my diagnosis to put with this illness that has completely turned my world upside down... But, with my diagnosis comes extensive testing, and extensive treatment observations before I am able to receive these treatments, all of which have to be done on site at the Cleveland Clinic... And living 7 hours away makes this venture almost impossible, mainly due to the expenses that I will encounter... Unfortunately, I am currently on disability due to the punch these illnesses have packed, and there is no way I can provide these trips for myself...
Cleveland Clinic has requested that I take one more short trip to Cleveland before Christmas, and that I also find a way to stay in Cleveland for at least 2 months around the 1st of the year to go through all of the testing and observations necessary to move forward in receiving treatment... And at this time, Cleveland Clinic is the only facility that options are available for me... This opportunity could allow me the possibility of a treatment for my illness, and the chance of once again having a normal life and being a productive citizen, and I am desperately seeking a way to make this happen...
The funds that I am requesting will provide transportation, lodging, meals, etc. for these trips... After these trips conclude, any excess funds will be contributed to another individual in need on this site... 
Asking for help or money has never been something I ever thought I could/would do.... But after much prayer, and advice of my case worker in Cleveland, this is something I am willing to do... I greatly appreciate any help that I can get to fulfill my hope of restoring a normal/productive life for myself... Much thanks to everyone, and God Bless! Please remember me in prayer at this time...
