About 6 yeas ago I was bitten by a tick, which gave me LYME DISEASE.    It took me 4 years to rid myself of the LYME disease but it triggered my getting PARKINSON'S disease.     My body is slowly going down hill and I have graduated from a walking with a limp to a cane and now to a walker.  I was to go to another 3 stem cell treatments in a 9 month time period   The idea is to get the stem cells to my brain where the PARKINSON'S damage is located and put layer after layer of stem cells    down in an effort to repair the damage done by the disease.  Since I am late stage Parkinson's,  time is  of the essesence.  I was going to pay my way  for  this treatment, but my insurance company refused to pay last years antibioic bill, which cured me of the LYME disease.   So ,  I had to  pay the $20,000.00 to the drug company.   This 20,000.00 money will fund 2 therapies in Chicago , who charges 10,000.00  a therapy.  The insurance companies refuse to pay for this treatment.  I  know this is insane, but until the U.S. government has approved the procedures,  the insurance companies can and do refuse to pay.

I thank you for any donation you can give, as it will help save my life.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!!!!
