Please help save my friend Teresa

What would you be willing to do for a friend to save their life? What if your friend was diagnosed with a terminal illness?
Let me introduce you to my dear friend Teresa. I met her about 9 years ago when she was managing a jewelry store in the mall. I ended up buying all of my jewelry from her over the years and got to know her. Some people you just connect with. She is one of those people. She has an energy about her and is always positive. She has a zest and passion for life and others.
In March of 2012, she was diagnosed with stage 3B ovarian cancer and was given 5 years to live. She went through 4 months of chemo and was in remission for almost 4 years. It came back in March of 2016 for the 2nd time. She went through intensive hard-core chemo again for 4 months and stayed in remission for another year. Now it is back for a 3rd time.
Even with insurance, medical bills can be a burden. Teresa is a fighter. She is one of the strongest people I know. She's continued to work through all of her treatments and has been trying to pay down her medical bills which have accumulated to over $90,000.00. (after insurance). The problem with insurance is that they only cover part of the bills for the "accepted" plan of treatment, which is chemotherapy. It's not that the chemo hasn't worked. The cancer had just been stronger.
Teresa has found a homeopathic oncologist near her home who has saved and cured cancer with an 85% success rate. He showed her her blood under a microscope and was shocked to see the amount of white blood cells she has. He said he hardly ever sees that in someone who has gone through chemo. He said she is a walking miracle with a strong immune system and that she would be the perfect t candidate for this treatment. Since its an alternative medicine, insurance won't cover any of the treatment cost, which is $28,000.00
The purpose of this Gofundme is to raise enough money to cover the entire cost for Teresa. Any additional funds will go toward her other outstanding medical bills. She and her doctor and I believe that this treatment will cure her cancer once and for all and save her life. Will you please donate and share this page? Please keep Teresa in your prayers. We serve a mighty God who is bigger than this and together we believe He will save her life.
Any and all funds raised will go directly to Teresa.
