Cynthia's Cancer Battle

Donation protected
Hi My name is Cynthia and I have cancer, Multiple Myeloma.
I have 2 young adult daughters and a young grandson. I am only 56 years of age. I have been an organic landscaper and farmer for most of my life. I have detailed some of my life experiences on my blog, The Messy Shepherdess . I have raised my family on Salt Spring Island, BC for 20 years and recently moved to Surrey in close proximity to the Fraser Valley Cancer Clinic.
The doctors have done everything they can and I had a brief remission. But it's back now and growing fast. The doctors can't offer me anything else. At the rate it is growing I have about 6 months. I am already feeling the effects of the cancer and will soon be incapacitated. The only recourse I have been able to find that offers any hope is to attend the Budwig Cancer Center in Spain and hope they can slow or stop the progress. They have had a 49% success rate with my type of cancer.
The $20,000 will cover air fare for myself with one daughter and two weeks at the center, where I will be given treatment and learn how to continue that treatment at home.
There is no time to waste, so I am urgently appealing to you to help fund my trip to Spain and the Budwig Cancer Center.  
Even if I don`t reach my goal, any funds I receive will be used towards treatment of my cancer or to help alleviate the expense of burial for my daughters.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Any and all help will be so very much appreciated.
