    Contact your local social
    Contact your local social services agency- there various programs available to assist your friend with the care and treatment she will need. Also, many areas have home health agencies that operate on a sliding fee based on income. Even the rehab center has social workers to help individuals deal with expenses. You sound like a good friend to help her in the fight to beat cancer.
