Stem cells for Sean

Hi! I am Sean and I would like to say thanks for visiting my Go Fund Me page.  Like most people I have a life-altering  problem and a story. I will skip most of the story as it is rather dull and not worthy of your valuable time.  For 25 years now I have been fighting a losing battle with my immunological condition (which they are calling MS). Recently the palliative care team at the hospital where I was being treated for a UTI gave me a 6 month window for the rest of my time here. From the research that I have managed to do, stem cell treatments look like the best option for treatment of immunological issues like this. However, they are not commonly done in the United States. Every other country that I have researched does this, Canada, Mexico, even Panama. Obviously insurance doesn't cover these treatments outside the US. Thus my reason for starting this Go Fund Me account, the need for a way to pay for the treatments. Said treatments range in price from $19,500 (Panama) to $40,000 (Mexico) and to safely cover the costs of travel, housing and other expenses while there (as well as the costs of the treatments themselves) we arrive at the 50k amount. As you can see the costs involved are prohibitive for someone like myself on social security disability payments. So I am reaching out to the kindness of others like yourself to make these last months worth living. Who knows, the stem cell treatments may actually improve my health to the point where I won't be leaving in 6 months!
Anything that you have to offer will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and attention. 
Sean
