The family and friends of Devon Marin are uniting to raise money to help her battle Cancer.Her hope is to undergo treatment in Texas.

In July of 2011 Devon was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer that has spread to her liver, lungs and now has entered the bones. Over the past year Devon has undergone 36 radiation treatments and continues to have chemo treatments every 2 weeks. In February 2012 Devon had undergone 2 emergency surgeries and stayed in the hospital for 4 weeks. Shortly after this, Devon was told that her cancer was terminal and that the surgeons could not remove the tumor. At the same time her oncologist told her that she had 6 months to maybe 1 year to live. Well Devon has passed the 6 months and is feeling strong to continue on. Today Devon and her new oncologist are looking into Devon's hope...A treatment center in Houston Texas is doing clinical trials with an experimental drug; Antineoplatons. Antineoplastons include peptides, amino acid derivatives and organic acids. They occur naturally in blood and urine and they are reproduced synthetically for medicinal use. Antineoplastons are components of a biochemical defense system that controls/attacks cancer without destroying normal cells. The name of Antineoplastons comes from their functions in controlling neoplastic, or cancerous, cells (anti-neoplastic cells agents). At this clinic they have had great success where in a number of patients the cancer was gone and no sign of the tumor. As it looks Devon seems to be a good candidate for this treatment. BUT as You know treatment like this comes with a "Hefty price tag" and her insurance does not cover this expense. Please show your support and help Devon fulfill her hope/dream.
