Giving Katie and Jesse hope

At the end of March 2017, Katie was going to U of M for treatments. The doctor came in and told us the chemo was not working and he had run out of options at that point.
Katie and Jesse decided to go to Cancer Treatment centers of America for treatments. They reveiwed her case and decided to put her on radiation and chemo. The radiation worked for the huge mass in her lower left lobe of her lung. The chemo on the other hand made the tumor spread to different parts of her body: to her cranium, spine, both hips, left femur, and right lung. They changed the chemotheraphy regiment; however, the cancer spread even more. The doctors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America sent her home because there was nothing else left that they could do for her. She does not want to give up. She is going to seek alternative treatment options in a different country and the insurance company obviously will not cover it.
Katie wants to leave while she is still well enough to travel. She plans on leaving towards the end of October.  I am putting this fundraiser together to help Jesse and Katie make this alternative treatment option possible. 
She needs as much money as soon as she can get it, so she can make flight plans and be able to pay the bill when she arrives. Please donate soon.
