let's be straight: jane and izgi need some help on the ground. jane now has a secondary lung cancer, with metastasis to the ribs, vocal chords, and pelvis. she is in an extraordinary amount of pain and even the strongest meds aren't helping.

first, there's the financial burden of copays and emergency room fees, vitamin therapies and complementary medicines to help ease her immense pain.

next, there is a great need for actual physical and emotional support of all the ozels. while okan is working hard to pay rent, bills, and carry insurance, jane and izgi need help on a daily basis: someone to prepare meals, clean up, go shopping, play outside with izgi, and help jane through this immediate crisis.

and finally, there's the ability to be present at appointments, help in managing insurance, getting to and from 

while I have the time and the ability to go help my dear friends through this leg of their journey, what is don't have is airfare or cash to help ease their financial burden. 

I am really hesitant to ask friends to contribute, but crowdfunding seems to be the best way. please help me get to LA to help all the ozel family to feel supported, loved, and cared for during this difficult time.

airfares are running around $700-$800+ fees and taxes right now, and I'd need to cover transportation and help contribute to the household bills for the duration of my stay. I've set the fundraising goal at $800 to cover air fare, but every little bit counts. thanks in advance for your financial and emotional support, friends.
