Question Help with Transportation

I am 52 and have a right facial hemangiomana. It is growing quite a bit and is from my chin all the way up to my forehead, I heard hormone changes can cause this...make sense, now.... I have never had it treated due to never having the funds. I have been recommended to see Dr. Yakes in Colorado (about 800 miles from me), will take a minimum of 6 treatments IF LUCKY. I have family there, so place to stay. Is there any help out there to cover transportation and costs? How are people able to treat these issues with funding??

Hi and welcome!

First, try an organization called Miracle Flights . They might be able to help some.

Do you have insurance? If so, do you know what they might cover?
