Default Chicago tollways

So, short story long, me and my girlfriend were taking her autistic daughter to streamwood behavior center outside of Chicago. Coming from St. Louis, where there aren't any toll ways, we had no idea we were suppose to stop every few miles and pay. O.o We get to Streamwood, get her daughter all set up, and started talking about our trip up there with the nurse, asked her about the toll signs, she said not to worry about it, they would send us a bill for all the ones we passed. Well bill came, what she forgot to mention is they charge something like 20 bucks per missed toll. O.O After 3 trips there and back the bill came to 395ish bucks, WAY more than we can afford. My question is, is there any tips or tricks to get this bill lowered? Neither of us can work right now me having heart problems her having issues herself, the trip to streamwood is costing us 23 grand, so it's pretty obvious we can't afford another 400 for our stupidity about tolls.
