My sister depends on me for all support. Please support this cause as this treatment is likely not only to save her life but many others.

My sister, Mayra Francisco was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2002 In the Dominican Republic. She went through chemotherapy, radiation and surgery in January 2003. I paid these treatments out of pocket by myself since she had no income or resources. Since her diagnosis I have also spent a great deal of money buying her supplements, vitamins, herbal remedies and other alternative treatments. These alternative treatments have been the reason she has been able to stay alive for over nine years. However, this past December her cancer returned and metastized to different organs. While the supplements and alternative treatments I have been given her have worked, she needs a much more potent and consistent approach. After much research, I have learned about intravenous vitamin c. This treatment is really promising. However, very high doses are needed at least three times per week for about one year. With shipping, supplies, and a nurse to aminister the treatment, the cost will be about $20,000. I can't continue helping her by myself. I need help to give her a chance of survival. I have borrowed heavily from credit cards and personal loans. This is the first time I have done a fundraiser. With you support I can continue helping my sister and anybody that is suffering from this terrible desease. Please help me keep their hopes alive. Thank you.
