Wife with Huntingtons Disease

My wife Stoney has Huntington's Disease, we need help in paying for home nursing, as she cant be alone, needs physical therapy, I work and take care of our 7 year old daughter. Huntington's is a rare neurological disorder which effects almost every aspect of the human nervous system, which in turn effects her speech, swallowing, balance, walking, memory, problem solving, etc. My wife cannot do most of the daily activities that you or I would take for granted. Eventually my wife will need full time nursing care in a facility. We have insurance but coverage for these things is minimal if at all. Without help we could be faced with losing our house, huge debt, inadequate care for my wife and we are just now beginning to feel the impacts on what jobs I can work and be there for my wife and daughter. We are already having family move in to help, but we need financial assistance as well. With these funds my wife will have access to care which will certainly improve her quality of life and may in the long run determine the length of time she has left. I never thought I would be asking strangers for help, but I am feeling desperate.
