Help Becky cut out the cancer!!

One of my best friends, Becky, has had a spot on her ear for years and years.... no worries on her end since it never changed or caused any discomfort. This year, it stared to make some odd changes and grow quite a bit. She went in to the dermatologist and had a biopsy done to see if it was cancerous. Turns out it is a very aggresive stage 4 melanoma cancer. They have told her that she will need to remove 95% of her ear to try and cut out all of the cancer, and that procedure is just shy of 2,000.00. 
She, as well as I, are paycheck to paycheck gals... and two thousand dollars isn't something we have lying around. If I had it, Lord knows I would cut her ear off for her!  This is the only way I can think to get this procedure done for her. According to the doctor, without cutting this cancer out and removing the ear, she may only have 5-10 years of life left. I cant allow that. I simply can't allow her to leave this untreated. I have to find a way to get this done! Shes my friend, Shes a mom to 2 young men as well as a dog mom to Zoey.... Shes important! To know that you need to have a procedure done but can't afford it must be so stressful, I can't even imagine.
The doctor is wanting to do this as soon as possible. I have faith that it will be done. 
Thank you so much for your time, 
Mandi
