T'Mia's MS medical funds

Hello I am T'Mia's mother, she is a 19 year old wonderful, loving and caring person. Who had just had a difficult and trying time at the age of 13, when her father the joy of her life were killed.
Now she is been faced with another difficult thing in life, T'Mia Have been diagnosed with MS-Multiple Sclerosis. It all started on a Friday night with an headache ( which we thought maybe allergies), to that Saturday morning with numbness and tingling in right hand ( she thought maybe she slept on it), and than Sunday left facial numbness and tingling, Well I called the ER talked to on call doctor, and she told T'Mia if its unbearable for you or if you wanted to go in to the ER do so, but if not make an appointment early in the am( Which would be Monday). T'Mia and I got up Monday morning got appt. Now T'Mia were slurring a little we got to the doctor office, we explained everything to the doctor .  While the doctor examining T'Mia the doctor noticed the slurring as well and she could see the facial change. The doctor immediately started so blood work and test on T'Mia.  So the doctor felt like it were bells palsy. So she ordered more test on T'Mia which included a MRI of her brain. Tuesday morning no changes, MRI of brain done, Wednesday morning get a call from doctor office that we needed to come in. So we did and I had this gut feeling something were wrong.  When we got there and the secretary hugged T'Mia ,we went to the back in the room and the doctor came in to tell us that all the test showed MS. That T"Mia had to immediately be admitted into the hospital for treatment. We were there almost 6 days. All kind of test done blood drawn continuosly, Medication to help ease, MRI of neck, spine, pelvic, and spinal lumbar tap. Which all were conclusive for MS. We were told its from the left side of her brain down to her neck. That really hit us.. Physical therapy and Occupational therapy worked with her. She became some what unsteady on feet at time. We are home now and its been doctor appointments after doctor appointments and I am not just a single mother, I am her only parent. Doctor bills are building up fast and I am right now on FMLA-family medical leave of Absence from my job to help her. 
   T'Mia is a great strong willing young lady, with a determine mind. I can see when it gets to her and she weren't sleeping at night, but the doctor gave her medicine for that and we noticed the depression moments, T'Mia right now is going to alot of appointments and physical /occupational therapy will be seeing her for needs to get her strength going. We were told that it is treatments for it. We are in need of help for her doctor bills costs, travelling expense, and medication. We were told that the first 6 months will be hard, cause she will be tried on different meds to see what helps her. And we are now going to see different specialist.
 If we could have help as soon as possible, we are greatful. 
This is like an Urgent call for T'Mia so she will never miss an appointment nor anything else that is a need for her treatments.
