Help a friend with a fragile baby

Dr. Mr. President

My friend Beth Gray has a 7 mo old daughter with a very rare brain cancer. They call her Panda.
Panda has been at Beaumont hospital in Royal Oak, MI, more than she has been home.
She is having chemo.
She was informed yesterday that they want her in Chicago this Monday.
They need a van for all of the medical equipment.
They need inexpensive housing for seven weeks.

Beth is a teacher at Walled Lake Schools and lives in West Bloomfield MI.
She has not been able to work this past school year.

I don't know where to turn with such short notice.

If there is anything that can be done it would help beyond belief.

They lost their savings because of an inactive account.

They have a blog & have received some help.

Thanking you in advance for anything you or someone may be able to do.
