Save my life

I have been diagnosed with IPF (Ideopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) and Emphysema. We feel that most of my lung damage came from work related exposure because I haven't smoked for over fifty years. There is no cure but Stem Cell regeneration is a promising new therapy that would involve getting four injections over the course of two years.
My paperwork has been sent to a Specialist who has been successful treating others with this condition but the injections are costly and not covered by insurance.
I must begin treatment as soon as possible because I have been fighting this since 2004.  I have beat the odds by living a healthy lifestyle, but now every day is a struggle to breathe. My grand daughter has already asked what is wrong. I want to live and see all my grandchildren thrive and grow. If you can help in any way I would greatly appreciate your kindness. Please tell your friends and contacts who may be able to help...
