Ifeta Opalic's Cancer Treatment

In September 2016, Ifeta Opalic was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, one of the most difficult cancers to battle. After months of chemo and radiation treatments, she was elligible for the whipple procedure. After the surgery, she was told that her tumor was removed and the cancer was gone. Unfortunately, in September 2017, a CT scan of her abdominan showed a spot on her liver. After a biopsy, doctor's revealed the cancer was back and that, even with chemo, she only had 12 months to live.
Nevertheless, Ifeta is a fighter and continues to seek medical help. The goal is to go a more holistic approach with the New Hope Unlimited cancer treatment facility. Because insurance will not cover this treatment, the only option left is to do a fundraiser. These funds will cover the treatment as well as the stay at the facility in Yuma, AZ. 
Ifeta has spent her whole life taking care of others and making sure everyone around her is happy, but has never asked for help in return. Please don't let cancer win. Please help give Ifeta a second chance at life by donating. No donation is too small; we appreciate any contribution in the fight for our mom's life. 
Forever Grateful,
Edvina Opalic & Elvira Pekmez (Ifeta's Daughters)
