Medical expenses for my neice

I am attempting to raise funds for my niece who lives in Ethiopia. Husnia is 27 years old and is seven months pregnant with her first child. She was diagnosed as having a cyst or growth at the base of her brain stem. The cyst has completely enveloped an artery which has caused restricted blood flow to her brain and subsequently causes problems with her equilibrium.  This growth has to be removed and tested to ascertain if it is benign or malignant (Cancerous). Due to the location of the growth, the local physicians have determined that this is a life and death situation and cannot perform this operation because of the lack of medical technology in her home country.  The nearest Country that has agreed to conduct this operation is India and will cost $30,000 for transportation, work up testing, the removal of the growth, possible care for the unborn child, follow up testing, and the duration of the hospital stay. Due to the fact that Husnia is in her third trimester, she is in immediate need of these funds to ensure the success of the operation and make a full recovery. As she approaches the eighth month of her pregnancy, the chances that she will be allowed to travel will greatly diminish, leaving her with no options for her or her baby. I implore everyone reading this synopsis to open their hearts and consider helping my niece with this urgent need.  All donations, no matter how small are greatly appreciated.
Thank you
