Lifesaving treatment for Raquel

I am setting up this page to help my incredible sister Raquel in her fight against stage III ovarian cancer. She is my best friend, a wonderful sister, loving daughter, and supportive wife and deserves to get the best treatment available so that she can beat cancer! Raquel is the most generous person that I know and the first to offer her help to anyone in need. She lights up a room and is a joy to be around.

She first was diagnosed with a rare type of ovarian cancer at the age of 23.  She went through two surgeries and the cancer was removed. The cancer has come back at the age of 32. She has already had two surgeries in 2014. Raquel has a rare form of cancer, so rare in fact that there are currently no treatments options in the United States besides surgery, which she has had. Chemotherapy and radiation do not work on this rare type of cancer. She has searched worldwide and found a hopsital that can and will give her lifesaving treatment. Raquel will need to be in at the clinic for 4 weeks and her insurance will NOT pay for this treatment. Total cost of this treatment is $46,000 the travel and home after care program is an additional $10,000,  total needed is $56,000. The full amount has to be paid before she can receive this treatment. The treatment includes ozone blood therapy, hyperthermia, UV blood irradiation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dendritic cell therapy, far infrared, laser therapy, high dose vitamin C, IV mineral therapies, biomagnetic therapy, IV laetrile, and most importantly the autologous bone marrow stem cell transplant. These treatments are not offered in the US.

The hospital in Mexico has a reserved a spot for Raquel, all that is left is raising the money to cover the treatment. Once she has the money, she can immediately start receiving this life saving treatment.

Raquel is so extremely positive and knows that she will beat this with the treatment coupled with the loving support of her family, friends, husband, and God.

I am asking for your help on my sister's behalf. Please if you are able to make a donation we would greatly appreciate it. Just think…if 600 people donated $100 or 1,200 people donated $50 we could send Raquel to treatment immediately. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about my wonderful sister Raquel and support her in her fight against cancer.

Please share this to all!!!
