Cancer is a Chapter; Not the Story

My mom has always loved me, unconditionally. She continues to encourage me through every endeavor and I owe her my confidence, my ability to love, and obviously, my life. We are doing everything we can. Whatever it takes. I'm sure you can understand our need to fight tooth and nail.
We've spoken with multiple Oncologists. According to them, there is nothing they can do. My mother has Carcinosarcoma. Stage 4. Grade 3. Imagine months of Chemo, discussions of radiation, surgery, immunotheraphy, and trials. Results are in. The cancer has grown. It's time to discuss hospice.
We found a holistic facility that has real results.  We've personally spoken with people who successfully healed through the 8-week program. It's comprehensive. It requires my mom to do 100% of what they teach. It's not covered by Insurance.
On our own, we can pay $20,000. Obviously, my mom's health is paramount so we have already started the program. In order to pay for the 2nd half, we need another $20,000 by the end of April.
I wish we could handle this on our own. We absolutely will pay all this forward as we progress in life and we are eternally grateful for those of you that are willing and able to help us when we can't ourselves.
