Any Lenvima / Lenvatinib left over to share?

Hello, my mother is sick with Adrenocortical Carcinoma, which unfortunately basically has no FDA approved treatments.  Her oncologists are trying to get her on Lenvima/Lenvatinib to try after some positive results in a recent study, but insurance will not cover it since it is not FDA approved yet, and the cost is an unbearable $23,000 a month out of pocket. 

I know it's approved for tyroid cancer, so was wondering if there may be some survivors or caregivers that have some of this medication left which isn't needed that could be shared with my mom to try and see if it will give her a few additional months.  At this point her agressive cancer is progressing quickly and we are desperate to try anything.

Thank you very much (from a thyroid cancer survivor, myself!),

Curtis
