This fund is created to help Naima in her battle against cancer. The funds will be used for medical expenses not covered by insurance.

Naima is trying to raise funds for her medical treatment that insurance does not cover. She has recurrent breast cancer that has metastasized to her liver. This is her second time with cancer. The first time she was diagnosed with breast cancer was in March 2005. She went through chemotherapy and was cancer free for five years and three months. Her cancer returned in June 2010. Her entire body was treated with chemotherapy until August 2011. She was told that the cancer had spread and consumed 80 % of her liver. Her oncologist told her that she should go home and contact Hospice. She has a 17 year old daughter still in High School. Naima did not believe that it was her time to die. Instead, she contacted Dr. Thomas Vogl in Frankfurt, Germany who she had been in touch with. He told her he could help. In Germany they use a treatment called T.A.C.E. which stands for Transarterial Percutaneous Chemoembolization.This means the chemo is adminstered directly into the liver tumors.
So far, Naima has responded well. Her doctor is happy with the results, as her tumors are shrinking. She has more good days than bad. She is positive and hopeful. Anyone that knows Naima, knows of her fighting spirit. She needs to continue these treatments which are costing her 5600 dollars a month not including her travel and living costs! To survive,Naima needs these treatments! So far, she's had four treatments. Her treatments are indefinite for right now. Naima's life depends on these treatments! Please help with any amount of donation as this is a very dire situation! Without treatment, Naima could loose her battle against cancer! Naima is a wonderful mother, a good hearted woman who believes in human kindness!. As a single mother who isn't working right now, these medical expenses are astronomical for her to handle alone! Naima has been a giver her entire life and will always offer a helping hand. Naima contiues to keep her chin up and her smile that never fades!
As her friend, I am asking her family, friends and friends of friends to help Naima win her battle against cancer! She has the will power, the perserverance and the love for life! Let's give her a fighting chance and ease this financial burden so she could put her energy in conquering this disease!
For further information about the treatments, please visit Dr. Thomas Vogl's website: The phone number is 496963017277 ( ask for Julia Schmidt his secretary).
