Help Monica Fight Cancer

My good friend, Monica, found out last week that she has kidney cancer that has metastasized.  She is 63 years old and is never sick, but she started having some gastrointestinal problems and a slight back ache a couple months ago so she went to the doctor.  It was a huge surprise to get a cancer diagnosis.  She has been working as a mortgage loan processor for many years and the company she works for put her on Family Leave to preserve her job, but she will receive no pay.  Her first oncology appointment is tomorrow and she will learn more about treatment options, but she already has tremendous bills from the CT and PET scans and hospitalization.  She and her husband are wonderful people who spent the last few years caring for her husband's sister who had MS (she died at age 47) and her husband's parents with Alzheimer's and Dementia.  They just don't have the reserves to cover Monica's medical expenses.  Any help anyone can give will be greatly appreciated and will be used solely for her medical expenses.
