Sheila, Nurse Practitioner in need

My friend Sheila is a great wife, mother of 3 and awesome Nurse Practitioner who has touched so many lives in her personal and professional life.  Always ambitious and going out of her way for her fellow man.   She was always health conscience, loved jogging, hiking traveling with family and friends.  She never smoked or drank and at only 47, at the height of her career.
Her life changed drastically 2 years ago when she started becoming very ill with an autoimmune disease that has affected her heart and pancreas and in addition, she was diagnosed with POTS disease.  After around 7 months of total hospitalizations she has undergone 2 pacemakers, endured heart surgery and is battling chronic pancreatitis due to chronic inflammation from the autoimmune disease. 
She has not been able to work,  has been forced to give up her home, her career and has lost a total of 40lbs in a short amount of time.  She requires almost daily infusions, takes 8 different medications daily and her battles have left her very weak and unable to thrive.  Her total medical bills have exceeded 2 million dollars.  
I am trying to raise money to help her and her family get out from under this tremendous financial burden.  Please help.  Any amount is appreciated.
