Helping a 29 year old, single mother of three, live the life she deserves since she has been given 6 months to a year due to skin cancer.

I am writing on behalf of a good friend of mine, Maria. She is an amazing 29 year old single mother of 3. Here is her story:

She lost her right eye at 22 years old to Mixed-Cell Malignant Melanoma. She was cancer free for 5 years. In January 2011 she was put into remission and in April 2011 she had a physical and they found a mass on her right breast. By June, she had a right masectomy. She had to do chemo for several months after and it was horrible for her. Although she should have rested, she continued to work to support herself and her kids. She finished treatment in March 2012, but in April started having stomach pains. She had a CT scan and they found a mass on her liver and within 4 weeks she went from 1 to 12 tumors on all 3 lobes of her liver. June 14, 2012 she was told she has 6 months to a year to live, even with extreme treatments. She has denied treatments, unless one can be found that will give her more than a year.

Her time with her children is most important to her and she doesn't want to be sick when she could be enjoying life with them. At this point, all we're asking is for anything that can help make this wonderful woman's life a little easier. She's such a positive person and deserves it! Thank you for your time!
