Carol Ramos needs a car to chemotherapy! She has 3rd stage ovarian cancer. Your support could mean an extra year of life!

My sister's name is Carol Ramos. She is 46 years old and has been diagnosed with 3rd stage ovarian cancer. She has survived major surgery in which 25lbs of tumor were removed from her abdomen.

Her recovery was very difficult and I did what I could to help, support and encourage her then and during all of her chemotherapy thereafter.

Her journey has been very difficult and unfortunately I am not in a financial position to get her one of the most important necessities, a safe and reliable car. Carol needs a car to get her from her apartment to doctor appointments for ongoing chemotherapy. She is not in good enough health to take a bus or ride a bike and her current means of transportation is a falling-apart VW bug that has a hole rusted through the driver's side next to the pedals so water splashes in on the driver when it rains, there are NO seat belts, the windows don't roll down, the seats have been worn to springs and have only a paper market bag to cover them, it leaks oil so badly that it needs a new quart every week, the hand break has been worn to nothing, and the gears don't shift correctly resulting in frequent unintentional traffic blocks.

Carol can't work in her current health and I have exhausted my expendable income on helping her with living expenses. All she needs is a better car, not a new car, or a fancy car, just one with seat belts. Any financial assistance would be wonderful!

I have learned through this experience that I can't do everything for her. She needs more than just me.

A reliable way to chemotherapy may raise her chances from 1 year to 5 years of life! Please, anything will help.
