Valerie's Compression Suit

Hello, my name is Valerie Bentley. I was in an accident in Tifton Ga November 2015. I was at home when a propane gas tank exploded right up under my feet. I was flown to Gainesville, Fl. I was in a coma for over 8 months and I have had over 100 surgeries. 67% of my body was burned. I cannot believe I made it through all of that. If it wasn't for God, I would not have. It's 2017 and I still can't go home to be with my family in Georgia. I went to an appointment at Hanger in Jacksonville, Fl. and they said that I need a COMPRESSION SUIT. I was measured from my neck down to the ends of my toe nails and everywhere in between. The suit is supposed to even out my skin, lesson the scarring, and make a huge difference in my appearance overall. I found out that my Medicaid will not cover the suit. I am asking for any help that I can get. The compression suite cost $2000 There is no way I can afford this alone. I don't just need this I want this so that I can look somewhat normal again. If I could get anyone to help me I would really appreciate it with all my heart! I just want to feel normal again and get better so I can move back to be with my family. This is my ONLY hope of getting this. PLEASE help if you can. If you can't please share . Thank you so much!
