Please help my mother beat cancer!

This is for my Aunt Sandy written by her daughter Wendy Knope.....

To anyone who knows my mom knows that she is a saint! She had raised us 3 kids and Has has been a loving, supportive wife to my dad. She is always smiling, cheering everyone on, supportive, she is truly the most selfless person I know.

4 years ago she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. They found it on her lung initially but discovered it started as ovarian cancer. She continued to stay positive and determined to fight it...not wanting to leave her husband, kids, and especially her grandkids. She fought like hell and went into remission....until now. The cancer has come back in full force. It has spread to her abdomen and the doctors are almost out of options.
As proud as my mom and dad are, they would never want to ask for financial support but unfortunately it has come down to this. They have very limited income as she is no longer able to work and my dad, with his own health problems, is retired.
So on top of dealing with trying to find any new medical options availabe...outside of Rochester...pay their household expenses and the never ending medical bills...we are turning to you for help!
Anything would help my parents get through this unbelievably difficult time. We would appreciate it more than words can ever say!
