Help Mother of 3 (Carol) Get Life Saving Treatment

Hello, my name is Shauna and my aunt is Carol Brennan, and we urgently need your help. 

Carol is a single mother of 3 children, 2 of which are still in school here in Dublin, Ireland, and she is also an amazing grandmother. She has battled cancer 3 times already; breast, bone and pancreatic cancer. Carol is not about to give up just yet, she wants to beat this 4 times! 

She has now been diagnosed with an aggressive pancreatic cancer with cancer also speckled in her lungs and in her stomach. The treatment she needs to survive is only available in Mexico and her doctor has urged that she gets treatment in Mexico as soon as possible. 

To breakdown our €130,000 goal, the cost of Carol's treatment is as follows: 
-Carol will need a range of specialised treatments, 6 days a week. (eg. Photo Dynamic Therapy, Sunivera Immunotherapy and Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy, among many other high cost therapies) 
-Miscellaneous medical expenses, ie X-rays / scans / medications 
-Accommodation at the Hope4Cancer institute. 
-A series of flights to Mexico, which will include stops to Paris or Holland, then Mexico City, then finally on to Cancun (x2)
-Food and personal items for a 6 months (in two 3 month instalments).
-Travel costs.

Carol is travelling to the Hope4Cancer centre in Cancun, Mexico, the world-renowned cancer treatment centre. They offer the latest and safest non-toxic cancer therapies which are proven to be more more effective than conventional chemotherapy they offer here in Ireland.

Hope4Cancer's combined therapies may give Carol a 78.9% chance of surviving (based on Hope4Cancers own research, see this link to read more - Survival Rates.) This gives Carol a much better chance of survival. Because as of right now she has a zero chance of surviving if she stays here in Ireland.

Putting it plainly, this GoFundMe is Carol's last hope. We know times are tough but we really appreciate any donations, no matter how big or small. Again, this is Carol's fourth time battling cancer, though she has never had to resort to fundraising to cover the cost of her treatment. Unfortunately, this time the costs are just too colossal to take on by herself. 

Carol is really pushed for time as she has discontinued her chemo here in Ireland, as was advised by her Doctor and therefore the clock is ticking against her. Her Doctor had stated that we must not delay and that "her situation is quite serious and time is of the essence". He wanted Carol over within the week but the enormous costs of the life saving treatment is delaying her from receiving the life saving treatment she needs. 

Carol is not done living yet. She’s an extraordinary woman with lots of plans, specifically being around to watch her children and grandchildren grow up. Carol cannot bare the thought of leaving her 3 children alone, so again if you can help in any way, please do. 

Any funds raised and not used will be donated.
