Save my mom

In 2016, mom was diagnosed with an aggressive type of breast cancer at the time she was stage 3C. She did chemo/radiation/dbl mastectomy. We were told her cancer is curative. We had so much hope in our hearts that we swiftly moved along with our lives and 6 months after her last rads treatment she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer with mets to the lungs via CT Scan.
The only treatment that will stop her kind of cancer from forming tumours and shrinking her current tumours is called Herceptin but it comes at a hefty price as she does not have medical aid and state hospitals do not offer this.
I'm asking for donations to prolong my moms life so she can be part of so much that still has to happen in our lives, getting married, having kids, experiencing life with me, getting up on our feet again. She is single and the bread winner, she takes care of her dad and I live with her, she works in a highly stressful environment in the retail industry, its long hours and weekends and undergoing any type of treatment will put her out of a job.
I am trying my best to get a second job as we wont survive on my salary alone.
I need donations to get my mom this treatment and get us through this tough battle.
The money that is raised will be for the following:
A second opinion (oncology costs)
Administering of Herceptin
Oncology costs (if the public sector is not able to assist)
My moms biggest wish would be to get immunotherapy.
