An urgent appeal for help

I received this email for help and am reproducing it here. A disclaimer, kindly make your enquiries and verifications since I am reproducing it in good faith:

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am Mr. Prakash Patil.
I urgently require help for this poor lady named Mrs. Sushila K Kumbhar from Ashta village in Sangli district of
Maharashtra, aged 50. She is suffering from Breast Cancer. Her income is below poverty line
Sushila works at our farms as a labourer earning Rs. 50 a day. Her husband is old and remains ill most of the time. Her own daughter has been abandoned by her inlaws hence lives with Sushila. Sushila is the sole bread winner of her family. Unfortunately she is suffering from Breast Cancer which is in her 2nd stage. She is undergoing treatment at Mahatma Gandhi Cancer Charitable Trust, Miraj-416410.
It is a private hospital which is where the main problem of financial aid is arising because no one is ready to sponsor her or provide help as the main condition/require of all NGO'S and charitable trusts is that the patient has to undergo all the treatment at a government hospital.
The main reason for her to undergo treatment at a private hospital is because most of the Government hospitals in Sangli are almost in a non operative and a deteriorated state and are open just for name sake. Poor patients are given poor quality and very bad medical treatment.
Hence on our recommendation, Sushila was advised to undergo treatment at a private hospital.
The cost of her treatment has summed up to Rs 1,50,000.
We have supported preliminary expenses of her treatment but our help is proving to be limited. Her expenses consist of Chemotherapy/radiations and injections above Rs. 3,000-+medicines worth Rs. 600/-.+Travelling expenses which is beyond her capacity. She needs a very urgent financial help. We have also appealed for funds but the paper work and responses from the trusts/ngo's is taking too much time She has very limited time left. PLEASE PLEASE HELP HER IMMEDIATELY !!!
The necessary hospital papers are there with me for your ready reference.
Kindly send your financial assistance to her bankA/C. NO.14529 of THE ASHTA PEOPLE'S CO-OPERATIVE BANK LTD,ASHTA.;Taluka-Walwa;District-Sangli-416301
