Help Save My Mom's LIFE!!!!

On October 23, 2012, my sweet mommy was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia). The doctors were very encouraging that this was a very simple cancer and that if you ever "wished for cancer" then you would want to wish for this kind. Not in my mom's case. She has a rare genetic disorder which causes the leukemia to be extremely aggressive. The hospital that she has been going to (UK Markey Cancer Center) told her that they have done everything they know to do and that the treatment they offer will not phase her cancer. My precious Mom has been through SO much in her life and has worked her whole life taking care of and providing for others, I feel that it's time we step in and take care of HER! If she doesn't recieve this special treatment then there is a 0% that we will ever get rid of the cancer. Unfortunately, this special treatment and medicine is SO expensive that her insurance will not approve it. There is no way that we can afford this. MY MOM'S LIFE IS ON THE LINE! PLEASE HELP ME SAVE HER! While dealing with all the treatment, she also fainted, fell, & broke her back. She has adopted my 9 year old nephew and has been raising him for the last 4 years. They are extremely attached to one another and if he was to lose her, he'd be devistated. We lost my Dad in 2009 and I refuse to lose her as well. She is all that any of us have. She is the rock to our family. PLEASE HELP! EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!!!
