Please help support Jane Spencer in her journey to become a cancer survivor.

On April 25th, 2012, my mother, Jane, discovered that she has a rare form of cancer known as Triple Negative Breast Cancer. It is currently at stage IIIB. She is seeking treatment and has discovered that her insurance will not cover most of it. We are asking friends and family to show support by giving a small donation. $5, $10, $20... If we can get 100 people to give just $10, that will give us $1,000! It adds up quickly! What's stopping you? Jane is a strong and loving mother of 5, grandmother of 24, and wife of one for 40yrs. Please help us raise the funds necessary for treatment. Thank you for your support. May God bless you! 7/19/12 UPDATE: Jane has begun treatment. Her second infusion of chemotherapy is on Friday, the 20th. So far, she is doing well with treatment. We are praying for her health to continue to be strong and that the treatment will work quickly. My parents are struggling to afford the costs of these treatments and any donation will be a huge help. Thank you for your prayer and support. Lena 6/13/12 UPDATE: *I got this from Jane's FB page* She says, "I have cancer that is rare and they know very little about it at the research center. I am the 1st to come to them at this stage, stage 3B so they are just experimenting. The main problem is deciding what to do, the less aggressive way(more natural) or the standard or *Dr #3's* way. Also avastin is no longer approved for breast cancer by the FDA so our insurance may not pay for it. We may have to pay for it and it is very expensive. Even though it is very good for breast cancer, politics is the problem. They say it is too expensive so it can not be used for breast cancer because breast cancer is considered a common disease now; even though only 5% of the population or 5% of cancer patients, or whatever, have what I have, Triple Negative cancer. It doesn't act like other cancers. So far, we seem to have held it at bay even though it is known as a fast spreading cancer. I have been so upset and that is not good for it. I just have to keep praying and trusting God to the best of my ability that it won't spread and that it will die or do what *Dr #3* thinks is best. I am between a rock and a hard place! We may have to sell practically everything that we own no matter which way we go."
