How do I find medical grants or a non-profit agency that would pay for me to receive intense physical therapy?

I have an incurable disease that affects my spinal cord. This disease has affected my ability to walk and stand for any length of time. With physical therapy, I can regain my ability to walk and stand.

Update:

I am trying to find a grant that will supplement my insurance. I am diagnosed withh CNS Vasculitis. My insurance will not pay for the type of physical therapy that I need.

    If you have no insurance and are low income, then you need to contact your county's department of social services. This is what you pay taxes for---they will help you get the physical therapy you need.

    Good luck.
