Kelli Brizendine's medical problem

Kelli (Bertelson) Brizendine is my daughter and has been married to Bruce Brizendine for 16 years. They have two children Carter 15 years old and a great young lady and Mason 12 and he is a super young man. They spent many years in Texas where the children basically grew up. Both Kelli and Bruce had jobs in Texas and they had medical insurance and were able to pay their bills.
A little over a year ago they moved back to Michigan and neither Kelli nor Bruce had jobs when they moved back. They basically left Texas because they had been down there for many years and their parents were getting older and may require help from the kids/relatives in the near future.
A few weeks ago Kelli contracted an illness called Guillain-Barre Syndrome. This is a syndrome that is contracted with no warning and the cause is unknown. She lost all feeling in her fingers and feet. She could not walk without assistance. She also had an indigestion problem that prohibited her from eating almost everything. Her memory has been affected. She has just recently completed a one week drug treatment that ran over $20,000. All of this has taken place in a matter of a couple weeks. On top of all this, they did NOT and do NOT have medical insurance, because of the high cost. They are having very severe financial problems and relatives are not in a position to be able to help enough to make a difference. It is going to be from months to years before Kelli will be able to function on her own, so their medical bills are continuing to grow at an alarming rate. Last week she fell and broke a bone in her foot.
Kelli and Bruce are really having deep financial problems and with one child in high school and one child in middle school bills are continuing to grow. Kelli and Bruce were both working prior to the Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and Bruce is continuing to work, but Kelli is unable to work.  
Any assistance you or your friends could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank You and please pray for Kelli and her family.   Thank You!
