Our fight for Amy

Hi everyone,  I would like to invite anyone and everyone to be an angel for my dear friend Amy.  Please read her story that I have posted below.  In February 2018 Amy was hospitalized and almost died due to organ failure. She has been diagnosed with Calciphylaxis,  an extremely rare disease causing calcium deposits to block her blood vessels and kill large  areas of skin on her legs. She has been hospitalized 8 times this year; she is unable to leave the house and needs help to bathe,  dress,  and use the bathroom. Her husband Robert does these things for her every day causing  him to lose time from work,  and deplete all of their savings.   The good  news is, Amy has been accepted as a patient at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota; the Number one hospital  for Calciphylaxis.  The bad news  is,  they can not afford the trip to the Mayo  or pay their monthly bills while Robert is unable to work. Please help in any way that you possibly can! Also, if anyone has an RV and they are willing to lend or rent it out for the trip that would be awesome! Thank you so much for taking the time out to hear Amy's story. If you are willing and able,  please help Amy and her family during this trying time.
