Rachel needs to go home

Hello,
My name is Carla Bower.  I am trying to raise funds for a dear friend of mine who has breast cancer.  Rachel Edwards has been fighting cancer for several years.  She beat it once but it came back with a vengeance.  She is not doing well at this time and is living with her husband and her boys in Victoria, Texas.  Hospice has been helping with her care for a few weeks now. All of Rachel's family is in Oregon and she would like to go home.  Her doctor does not believe she can handle the long road trip from Texas to Oregon so I am trying to raise funds for her to fly home with two of her boys accompanying her.  Rocky, her husband , and the other two boys will be  packing up and traveling by car to follow her.  This family has struggled immensely the last year.   Rocky has been doing his best to support his family and take care of Rachel, but you know the medical bills are beyond one person's ability to pay, along with trying to provide the basic necessities for his family.  As you can imagine, the emotional side of this has taken its toll. They need to go home and have the support of their family.  Unfortunately, the family cannot afford to lend financial support for this trip as much as they would like to.
Please help me raise this money so Rachel can go home to Oregon and enjoy her days with the rest of her family.  She has not given up the fight, but she wants to go home.  She NEEDS to go home!   Please help. Every donation, no matter the amount will be greatly appreciated by me and this precious family.
