Help fund Ann's Chemotherapy

My beautiful friend Ann is just like anybody else's friend. She is an intelligent, funny, big hearted mother and wife. She has worked hard all her life .  She loves to sew , her chooks , she even drops the odd profanity :) 
The difference here is that after an exhausting and "successful" battle against Breast Cancer ( She's tackled breast , brain and bone tumours )  she needs chemotherapy to prolong her life as she has stage 4 Cancer ( HER2 + ER) Stage 4 is end stage cancer , terminal , and although you cant fix it , you can have treatment to prolong life .
The chemo drug Ann needs is made by Roche and is not covered by the PBS . For Ann, Roche has kindly agreed to reduce its $93000 price tag to $15000 on compassionate grounds.  
Ann and her family have drained their finances fighting her disease and despite still working 4 days a week ( she has no superannuation ) she can not afford the treatment.
This is where we can help. I dont have $15000 either but I believe that if people donate what they can and share this campaign we can prolong her life . We all feel powerless against Cancer . This is a very real and worthy  way of fighting back. We can change the ending of this story.
