Battling against osteosarcoma

I would like to raise money to provide for my daughter Shania DeCarmo future medical procedures, medication and transportation. She has just turned 19 September 12 and has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. This is a rare bone cancer which is only found in children and young adults. Unfortunately in order to cure the cancer, the hospital she's in currently told us they would have to cut the whole left side of her leg off because of where the cancerous tumor is located. We are currently seeking a second opinion to prevent this from happening. However because of limited insurance and finances we are asking for any amount of donations you can give to assist us in this process. I have exhausted just about all my finances in addition to losing my job and home because of having to travel back and forth from North Carolina to New York. Thank you all for your empathy, time and consideration
