Help Ilona beat Lymphoma

Ilona Sop is my dear sister, she is a loving mother, grandmother and devoted wife.
Ilona has been diagnosed with lymphatic cancer couple of years ago. She received few rounds of invasive chemo therapy which weakened her immune system. In the past few months she was in and out of hospital. Just 3 weeks ago she was released from hospital and just in two days back to ER with horrible pneumonia and urine tract infection.  After lots of new examinations the doctors suggested Rituximab as the last option to try to put the lymphatic cancer under control, if not remission...fingers crossed! 
The only problem is that this medication is not covered by medical insurance and the cost is between $8,000 - $11,000, she needs to receive at least 3 rounds of it as soon as possible. The family can not afford this financial burden.
She will stay in the hospital for much longer this time, since her immune system is extremely weak, she can't be exposed, plus she doesn't have so much energy for taking care of herself. Right now she can't even have visitors.
The money we are raising would be used to take away worry and stress about making my sisters family personal ends meet, and also for any medical bill's that won't be covered under their insurance. 
Any donations would be accepted with honest appreciation and love to help my sister and her family at this difficult time.
I'm hoping we are not running out of time. Please do not let her loose this battle. Thank you in advance.

Moja draga sestra Ilona Sop je voljena majka, baka i posvecena supruga.  Pre nekoliko godina je diagnozirana sa "non hodgkins lymphomom" - kancerom limfnih zlezda. Prosla je kroz nekoliko veoma surovih hemo terapija, koje su joj oslabile imuni sistem. U poslednjih nekoliko meseci je bila nekoliko puta u bolinici. Samo pre par nedelja su je otpustili i potom u roku od dva dana nazad u hitnu. Imuni sistem joj je potpuno oslabio i dobila je upalu pluca i infekciju urinarnog trakta. Posle nekoliko detaljih pregleda, doktori su predlozili poslednju i jedinu opciju...RETUXIMAB koji dokazano stavlja lymphomu u remisiju (mirovanje)u 80% slucajeva. Jedini problem u ovom slucaju je da lek RETUXIMAB nije pokriven zdravstvenim osiguranjem, a kosta izmedu 8000- 11000 eura, jedna tura, a preporucuje se 3-6 tura.
Ona ostaje u bolnici do daljnjeg ovoga puta, posto joj je sva ta hemoterapija uzasno oslabila imunetet, i oduzela snagu u velikoj kolicini. Tako da Ilona nije u stanju da brine o sebi.
Novac koji sakupljamo bi bio upotrebljen za Ilonino lecenje i ostale potrepstine vezane za istu. Porodica apsolutno ne moze podneti ovaj finansijski teret.
Sve donacije za  pomoc u lecenju moje sestre ce biti primljene sa puno zahvalnosti i ljubavi u ovoj  nezavidnoj situaciji. 
Nadam se svim svojim srcem da ne gubimo trku sa vremenom i zato vas sve molim ne dozvolite da Ilona izgubi ovu bitku.
Hvala vam dobri ljudi unapred.
