Never Give Up - Rocio's Lung Cancer

Rocio Montano, my sister-in-law,  was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer approximately 1 month ago.  Typical stage 4 patients have cancer in either both lungs, the brain, the bones,  and / or the liver and kidneys.  Thankfully Rocio has it in just one lung at this point, which is why we are fighting furiously to keep it contained.   Time is crucial, and we have already started an aggressively planned chemotherapy strategy at Angeles Pedregal Clinic in Mexico City - truly one of the best treatment centers in the world for cancer.
Of course this comes with an overwhelming cost including the tests, treatments and travel, all of which is ongoing as we battle this with Rocio.
The need for funds are urgent and immediate as we are already exhausting family and friend resources in our fight.
We will never give up, and anything that you graciously contribute will go to the above mentioned costs as we fight to ensure Rocio will enjoy an extended life with her granddaughter, and soon to be 2nd granddaughter!
Rocio, for what it matters, never smoked in her life.  She has always respected and accepted others with compassion, free of judgment. 
Time is urgent in order for us to aggressively contain this cancer so that Rocio can have a prolonged prognosis to enjoy life with those that love her the most, as well as those who have yet the pleasure of meeting her.

Rocio Montano, mi cunada, fue diagnosticada con cáncer de pulmón hace aproximadamente 1 mes. Normalmente pacientes en etapa 4 son aquellos q tienen cáncer en sus dos pulmones y otros órganos, cerebro, huesos.  Afortunadamente Rocio solo lo tiene en un pulmón, es la razón por la que estamos luchando furiosamente con todo para evitar que esto avance. Es por eso q ha empezado un tratamiento de quimioterapia en uno de los mejores hospitales de Mexico por lo cual uno de los más caros y no hay dinero q alcance. Es por eso q estamos pidiendo de su ayuda para poder seguir con sus tratamientos, exámenes y viajes, todo esto por la lucha con Rocio.
nunca nos rendiremos y lo que generosamente contribuyas será utilizado para la causa arriba mencionada, estamos peleando para asegurarnos que Rocio tenga una larga vida y pueda disfrutarla de su nieta de 3 años y la segunda q viene en camino. Rocio no fuma para los que se preguntan, ella es una mujer con mucha humildad y ha ayudado y aceptado a todos con compasión y amor, es por eso q nos urge su apoyo para que Rocio pueda disfrutar de una larga vida con esos a quien ella ama y la aman y para aquellos q no han tenido el placer de conocerla .
