Support for the Oliveira's

My friends mom was unfortunately recently diagnosed with cancer(melanoma). They are great people, and the kind that won't ask for help. But they could really use some. While her mom does have insurance, unfortunately insurance does not cover everything and they have large copays for treatments and appointments, in addition to needing to pay for appointments and medications not covered by insurance. In addition to these medical bills, she is being treated at Dana Farber as it is the best treatment center around and her particular form/presentation of her cancer is abnormal. Unfortunately they live in Rhode Island and must commute to Boston for appointments/treatments, and gas and parking aren't cheap. Dana Farber does offer free lodging to patients who live more than 40 miles away, but unfortunately they live 39 miles away. I'm starting this campaign because they won't ask for help although the bills are starting to become stressful, especially with her mom being out of work due to this horrible disease. Anything helps, and while money isn't a cure, it would definitely alleviate some of the stress and financial strain.
