Regina's Breast Cancer Fight

This is our mom Regina. A little over a year ago she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. We were told that it was real aggressive and she began her fight... She went through 7 rounds of chemo to shrink the tumor. Then a mastectomy. Then another 12 rounds of chemo. All that to find out that the cancer is so aggressive it spread even while on the strongest chemo the doctors have to offer. In an attempt to remove the still spreading cancer my mother then went through a radical mastectomy, this is where the peck muscle and all tissue is removed from her rib cage. She had a skin graft of shark skin to cushion her ribs and 3 weeks later had another skin graft done. We thought ok, this is it. Only for the surgeon to tell us she found some more places to biopsy. Results... yes, still has cancer and still spreading. It is now in her left breast and the surgeon doesn't think doing a mastectomy will help. The doctors are baffled and are now telling us there isn't anything else they can do. They want to do a PET scan to see the activity of the cancer. That is something that her insurance will not pay for. The cost is $3000. Through the whole process my mother never quit her job. She worked and still works as much as possible. Due to the muscle being removed it has limited the use of her right arm which makes her job challenging. Though she is determined to have a job she can't continue to work as many hours as she does. She is filing for disability but it can take up to 90 days. During all the chemo and surgeries she has fallen behind on bills. Any help to go towards her PET scan or bills would be greatly appreciated.
