Help Marilyn fight breast cancer

My mother Marilyn Schenk was recently diagnosed with stage 2-3 her-2 positive breast cancer that has spread to four of her underarm lymph nodes. She is currently off work due to undergoing intensive chemotherapy treatment and because of that she lost medical insurance through her work. She was able to find another health insurance plan but the monthly premiums are still kind of high. My mother has never been one to ask for help but her out of pocket medical costs are already building up so we're humbly asking for any help with out of pocket expenses for upcoming doctor visits, chemo sessions, test, labs, surgery and medications. This would be a blessing and so very appreciated. Anything helps so if everyone could please share this and most importantly keep my mother in your prayers that would mean so much to our family.

Thank you!
