I just got back from Boise last night, but there may be other options for 
less than the full amount.  There is the Multiple Sclerosis Society, which 
might have lots of information.  Also if she has Medicaid and/or Medicare 
and a recommendation from a doctor, there might be some help.  I sure think 
she should talk to hospital social workers, because they sometimes have 
sources.  There must be a hospital where her physician is affiliated,  There 
be other sources like Lutheran Services, even general reha b. Part of this 
is just being creative in her search.  Maybe she has someone who can help 
with that.
