Pancreatic Cancer Treatment for mom

As most of you know my mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Pancreatic Cancer back in February. In April she had major surgery in hope to remove it. The surgeon removed everything they could see with their human eye. We thought it was gone. She went through months of chemo only to find out it didn't work, the cancer was back and has now spread to her chest. They attempted to do a more aggressive type of chemo but also to no avail. They told my mom to go home and get her affairs in order and that they will try to keep her as comfortable as they can.  We did not and cannot accept that. My friend Sara told me of her friend Jose who has a daughter battling cancer who led us to Chipsa Hospital in Mexico. They do some conventional medicine but also a lot of alternative medicines. Medicines and treatments that are not allowed here in the US because of FDA regulations. They treat the patient as a whole not just the cancer. We have been so incredibly moved by this place and we feel Jose was sent as an Angel from God to lead us here. The down side is it is in Mexico and my mom's insurance will not cover these treatments. My mom and dad are there now and have spent their life savings to be there.  They have been there for almost a week and will only be there for another two weeks. This is a dire situation and we need to raise this money ASAP. They need another $10,000 to receive all the treatments that are available to her. I know that she would never ask you to help so I am. No amount is too small and anything you give would be so appreciated. I hope that you can give what you can to help her and if you can't please continue to pray for her and share this with everyone you know so that they may help as well. With all our love.
