Medical fund - Mayo Clinic referral

Starting in April of this year, I began to have trouble walking.  I noticed the problem slowly.  It began with some problems with my balance and then not being able to take the stairs at work.  But after a couple of weeks, I knew it was time to see a doctor.  I saw a neurologist, who sent me for some MRIs and some blood work.  I had to see several doctors during the summer.  Finally, in September I found an amazing doctor who was on my insurance and willing to do whatever tests it took to treat me.  More MRIs, a spinal tap, and an EMG later, and we still have no diagnosis.  But we do know that I will need to be seen by the specialized neurologists at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida in order to diagnose my illness.  The muscle weakness and spacicity is now in both of my legs and starting to effect my arms, and the doctors at the Mayo Clinic have the ability to figure this out.  They will be able to run tests to completely rule out if this is ALS, or if it could be one of many genetic conditions.  The Mayo Clinic does not accept my insurance and the cost of the tests and travel there will be enormous.  Any help you could offer will be a huge blessing to me and my family as we go through this journey.
