Mayo Clinic in rochester Minnesota

On April 11, 2018 my husband was diagnosed with an extremely rare disorder called Spontaneous Celiac Arterial Dissection, and on August 2, 2018 our 19 year old daughter was also diagnosed with the same disorder. According to the doctor's their are only about 100 cases of this disorder in the world. This disorder has caused my husband to have a spleen infarction due to a blood clot that was not allowing blood flow to his spleen. He also has multiple dissection's on several of his arteries, and three aneurysms in his stomach. My husband is in constant pain on a daily basis. Our daughter's diagnosis was discovered early, and as of right now she only has one dissection on her Celiac Artery. However if she isn't treated soon she will also have the same complications my husband is having. My husband is currently being treated with blood thinners and so far that is the only thing that is helping him maintain his blood flow. Their doctors have been able to diagnose them both with this disorder, but there is no other treatment here in Corpus for them so they have both been referred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. Their first appointment is on October 29 with an aneurysm evaluation, and multiple appointments during the week with nutritionists, genetics doctors, and cardiovascular surgeon. We are expected to be in Minnesota for about 5 to 7 business days. This money will help us with the cost of traveling to, and from Minnesota along with some medical bills. We are needing to come up with this money no later than October 12, 2018. Please help my husband and daughter get to the Mayo Clinic. It is extremely important because their aren't any doctor's here that can treat them with this disorder. Thank you in advance, and may God bless you all.
