Jocelyn's Breast Cancer Recovery

Our daughter, Jocelyn, only 38, has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be going through 6 rounds of chemo before major double mastectomy surgery (immediately after 6 treatments are done). Even with health insurance through her work, the co-pays are still overwhelming to a single mom and there are some things insurance doesn't cover at all. The bills have started to pile up already as certain things had to be paid upfront, such as her biopsy. 
The copay for the port that is needed for chemo is $1000.  In addition, there is the option for a Digacap (another upfront cost) which is new and is placed on her head during chemo to help prevent Jocelyn from losing her hair, which is not covered by insurance. Each cap is $300 for each round of chemo (she is set up for 6 rounds now before the surgery). We think if Jocelyn doesn't lose her hair, our granddaughter Alexis might not have such a traumatic experience with her mom going through this.  Jocelyn has remained so strong for her! 
After chemo and surgery, Jocelyn will require many tests and medications for 5 years to keep the cancer away. Jocelyn also has epilepsy, so much of her insurance savings budget can be used up rather quickly with neurologist visits, eegs, MRIs and medications for that condition. 
Jocelyn sees a light at the end very long and difficult tunnel which keeps her fighting, help us help her.
Any amount you can contribute to her recovery fund will be greatly appreciated.
