Help Dione Live

Hi everyone. Most of you are aware that I have been battling cancer since 2016. They stopped my stomach from exploding, cut out 2/3rds of my liver and removed my colon and rectum, amongst other minor procedures. This past September, I found lumps in my neck and clavicle area, it turned out that the cancer has settled in my Lymph nodes. I was given 6-12 months to live and my doctor said there was nothing more he could do for me. In my research, I have found several alternative treatments and facilities to go to. It is expensive and not covered by insurance. It costs between 35,000.00 to 85,000.00 for a 3 or 4 week session. I am hoping to raise a good amount of money, to afford as many individual treatments (8,000 here, 4000, there) as I can. Monthly herbs, vitamins and supplements are costly and the SSDI (social security) only gives me 300.00 a month. I need help.
I am not ready to leave my son. I love him more than anything and I don't want to leave him. I don't care if the doctors said "That's it! There's nothing more to be done." I disagree! I want to watch my son graduate from High School and College too!
I appreciate your taking the time to read this. Blessings to all and thank you.
