A biopsy was finally done last week and now she is being told she has a hole in her lung (???) and it has mold growing around it. They say she is too weak for any type of surgery that could possibly remove the area. She's told that antibiotics will not be strong enough and the medication she needs is too expensive.
Fungi in the lung are found in two major categories: invasive and non-invasive. They can cause pneumonia or lung abcess (abscess) (the 'hole'). When invasive they are treated with anti-fungal drugs, many of which are not expensive (especially if life-saving) but sometimes these drugs must be combined with surgery
to remove the infected area.
According to a Mayo clinic study, sinusitis caused by growth of fungus fibers or balls of fungus fibers in the sinus cavities is not unusual. This is typically caused by common Aspergillus, Fusarium, and Curvularia species. Aspergillosis caused by the growth of aspergillus species in the lungs most commonly A.fumigatus, A. flavus, A. Niger and A. territus species typically occurs in persons with compromised immune systems or a history of lung disease that resulted in past lung damage.

Once again, just because you can shine a light through your hand, does not mean that sunlight can penetrate into your lungs. In fact, it cant. No sunlight ever gets into your lungs unless you have been cut open. Try this as an experiment. Shine a light through your hand and notice how much light gets through. Now hold your hand up to the sun and see how little gets through. Almost none in fact, other than perhaps the thin fleshy webbing between your fingers and even then it is a minimum amount of light.
Never mind the fact that any foreign body would cause an aggressive response from your immune system that would result in a serious pulmonary infection. There was no puss in the lungs, no fever, and no immune reaction according to the report.
Given that the fir tree was shown to be 5cm in size with several needles, one could figure a minimum of another 5cm for the roots, which they never show, that would mean that a 10cm plant grew without sunlight, and without nutrients, from a single tiny seed. It simply can't happen. Check your botany and see for yourself. Even hydroponic plants can not get that big from a seed without the proper amount of sunlight. Learn some science and deny the Hoax.
Sunlight will simply not penetrate into the lungs. You can lie a body down on an examination table under a very bright light source, and a very sensitive camera inserted into the bronchial tubes will show only darkness. That is why endoscopic instruments have their own light source.
Light is absorbed by the various skin chromophores and scattering arises because of the refractive index fluctuations on a microscopic level.
