Jyestha's urgent medical treatment

My dear friend Jyestha desperately needs your help! 
Jyestha has been diagnosed with a rare type of cyst inside her spinal cord called a Syringomyelia.
Recent MRI's show that the cyst type tumour has doubled in size in the last 9 months.
If left untreated will cause full quadriplegia. 
Conventional medical treatment cannot offer anything other than a very dangerous operation, risking 60% chance of instant quadriplegia,  and 60% chance of massive stroke and an even higher chance of massive infections post surgery (which is the most concerning aspect according to the specialists)
Neurologists are not willing to look at performing the operation until signs of partial paralysis are present and the operation, if successful, will not reverse this damage.    
Jyestha is literally the most generous and compassionate person I know.
Jyestha has been living in a Hare Krishna temple community, selflessly serving others full time for the last 5 years - instead of focusing on saving the little money she had in the last few years, she has spent thousands of dollars on education costs for children in India and putting her friends and loved ones needs first, always - she even organised my wedding, among hundreds of other weddings on a voluntary basis - and now Jyestha is about to walk down the isle herself!  
Her wedding date is set for early December - please help her WALK down the isle!
Doctors have not seen such a cyst this size without symptoms of partial paralysis and warn that sudden symptoms could happen at any moment.
At the moment, the only symptom is severe headaches that last for months at a time. But she could literally fall over tomorrow and not be able to stand up again!
The only hope for shrinking the size of this cyst is non invasive holistic natural medicine 
For Jyestha to get the expert natural medical treatment that offers hope for her to walk down the isle on her wedding day it has been suggested she go to India for Ayurvedic treatment, which has been proven to have massive effects where western medicine gives up. 
Jyestha needs your help to get to India, for passports, visas, air fares, medical costs and accomodation. 
She cannot travel to India for the first time alone, and her future husband is not able to go with her due to his pending permanent residency application.
So I have decided to quit my job as a qualified naturopath and travel with her to make sure she gets the best treatment available. 
Please, if you are able to donate a small amount to help Jyestha treat the cyst so she can walk down the isle
on her wedding day, please donate! We have calculated an estimated cost of $6000.00 for 2 airfares with taxes and accomodation along with the cost of the treatment itself. We hope to leave within a month and return before December for the wedding. 
Please, donate if you can spare anything at all!!!
