Marisa's stage IV breast cancer fight

In 2013, at the age of 27, Marisa was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a year of treatment, first a mastectomy, followed by four months of chemo therapy, five weeks of daily radiation, and further infusions every three weeks, her cancer spread to her lung. She now has stage four breast cancer which is treatable, but incurable. Later this year Marisa will hopefully receive a new drug called TDM1 which isn't covered by Medicare or health insurance and will cost approximately $15,000.
