Help Betsy Beat Cancer

I never in a million years would have thought that I myself would make one of these as I wouldn't even do it if I had a serious condition for myself. Those that know me know that I never ask for much, but my mother means the world to me. A couple months ago my mother Betsy Torres was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast cancer triple negative and a cancerous tumor in her lymph node, both malignant and said to spread fast. My mother has no insurance that will cover Stereotactic Radiosurgery to target the tumors and I am trying to raise as much as I can to pay for it. Every little bit helps and we appreciate even a few cents that can be donated if you can. I really hate asking but I have very few options at this point after looking at many alternatives. I appreciate and God bless every single one of you who can donate even a little bit. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I will send updates on how everything is going as well in the coming weeks and months.

Almost 8 years ago, Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and she underwent a lumpectomy surgery and sentinel lymph node removal. Her immune system is in very poor condition so chemo and radiation was out of the question. Instead she continued treating herself holistically as best she could,  but it is expensive and insurance doesnt cover it either. so she wasnt able to do it as well as she should have. She also spent alot of time sick from several surgeries after the original lumpectomy, including a surgery where they had to cut back into her breast to the site of the original tumor because the wound would not stop bleeding.
so a couple months ago they found a malignant tumor in her lymph nodes, and her left breast right above where the original tumor was from 8 years ago. The oncologists and surgeon said they would need to would have to infuse her with 4 differnt types of chemo drugs, which her immune system will not be able to handle, then do surgery to cut out the tumor and some of the lymph nodes, and cut out the tumor in her breast, but during the surgery they may make the determination to do a full mastectomy of the breast (removing the breast), causing lifelong lymphedema where her left arm  would be swollen, in pain, and unusable and will do permanent damage to her heart. This is why we are trying to go for the stereotactic radiosurgery, which involves no pain or bleeding, side effects or damage, IV Hi Dose Vit C Infusions, L-Glutathione IV Therapy and other holistic treatments and therapies that will help repair her immune system and allow her to finally live a life where she isnt constantly weak, in pain, and anxious.
My poor Mom has been through so much and she is the sweetest nicest person you can meet. She is soft spoken,  polite, loving and caring, loves her family and she loves cooking!
I added the extra information to give everyone a better idea of whats been going on.

Again, Thank you and God Bless You All.
