Weʼre raising £500 to help get the funds for an iontopheresis machine for my hyoerhydrosis

I got diagnosed with hyperhidrosis when I was 14. It got to the point where ifi went anywhere i wouldnt take my shoes off anywhere because of the smell from the sweat. For the last 15 year's iv tried tablets, deodorants that haven't worked. I then got referred for iontopheresis which is an electric current passed through the affected areas to slow down the sweat glands. I have just finished my taster course on the nhs which has worked wonders. Made a massive difference to my social life and the way I feel about myself. Unfortunately I only get one course at the hospital which means purchasing a machine myself as it needs constant monitoring. The condition will never go away but with this machine it will contain it short term.
I would be grateful if people can help me fulfil this solution to a long standing issue
