JCM needs funding for DBS surgery

My wife and BEST friend [ she is unaware of my asking for your help] needs help to have funds raised for her DBS surgery. DBS stands for Deep Brain Stimulation.  As she is on a fixed income and some of the costs are out of Medicare network these funds will be used to pay off the hospital, Dr., follow up treatments and any other necessary medical needs to help with her Essential Tremors. This condition is not curable but controlable by having this procedure done{ also used for Parkinsons}. She has been on the maximum drug dosage allowed for the past 5 to 7 years. This medicine is now causing her to lose her beautiful strawberry hair. Essential Tremors is life [only 72 young] changing as she has very little control over her head and hand movement. Not able to do things like sign her name, cut her food or many things that are taken for granted.
Funds are needed in the next few weeks as her surgery, treatment which is two holes drilled into the top of her head followed by the running of wire contacts to a battery device will be implemented in the next 6 to 8 weeks. Then several trips back to Barrows Clinic to program the battery pack.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated
Thank You
