Raising Money for Cancer Treatment

We are trying to raise funds for a family member who was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in OCT 2013. Her name is Jennifer Sharpe & It has been a struggle and a trial but this she has kept her chin up and been very strong and very brave through the entire process. 
Chemo in combination with several medications was the initial treatment plan and the tumors were appearing to be shrinking until recently. Now the medications that were previously being used are also very detrimental to the body and the treatment regiment must be changed. I personally have been trying to express that chemo therapy as a stand alone treatment will not be as effective as if used in conjuction with alternative treatments. Most of which, health insurance will not cover, specifically "the macrophage treatment." This is a treatment that is practiced in Japan and other parts of the globe and has shown very promising results. The amount of hope and optimism that comes from this is through the roof! But although it has shown such promising results, U.S. health insurance does not cover this treatment. The recomended treatment costs $6,000 that we simply do not have. Many people have suggested this as a route for us to go so I pray it will help. Thank you all so very much...
