Help Alma Beat Cancer

I have started this account to help my aunt Alma who was recently diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer which has spread to her lymph nodes. This comes after a hysterectomy in July of 2016 due to complications caused by uterine fibroid's which grew large and caused her extreme pain and bleeding. She found herself in financial stress then and was over the past year just getting back to where she needed to be financially. She is a single mother of two boys. In our family she is the rock that holds us together. She is the go to person for all of us and has always made sure to make time for anyone of us when in need. She handles most of my grandparents affairs and today I would like to be that person for her.
This has been a very difficult couple of weeks for our family. Due to the nature of her cancer, My aunt Alma will have to undergo immediate chemo, surgery(ies) and follow with radiation (total of 1 to 2 years of treatment per doctors orders). She has also been diagnosed with a genetic disorder called HER2/neu which promotes the growth of cancer cells. There will be extensive expenses that accompany these procedures. Aside from medical expenses, she will lose a substantial amount of income due to her inability to work during chemo, after surgery and during her recovery process. Since learning of her cancer, she's on a strict "cancer starving" all natural raw diet. She is currently striving to keep harmful ingredients out of her body. Aside from following doctors orders she has also chosen to take an naturalistic approach in an effort to gain health and wellness in the healthiest way possible. Due to the results of the genetic testing, she will not only have to deal with this situation now, but this is going to be a complete lifestyle change as she will have to continue some sort of hormonal treatment for the rest of her life in an effort to prevent future cancer once this cancer has been removed.
My goal today is to raise enough money for my aunt to cover her rent for at least the next 6 months so that she can concentrate on her recovery and not worry about how she will make ends meet. All funds received will be used to help pay for my aunts expenses and alleviate the financial stress this brings. Your donations will help her beat cancer, but above all your prayers will help her even more. 
Due to this draining emotional situation for my aunt Alma, we ask that if you have questions, please communicate through text message as this is still a very sensitive issue to speak of.
