Are they frozen eggs or embryos? Frozen embryos have been transferred for several years successfully, so that's a good prospect. Usually FET cycles are a few thousand $$ and mainly involve you taking meds to prepare the uterus for transfer.

Freezing eggs is much newer. There's a new process called vitrification which has made frozen oocytes viable for later thaw and fertiization. As far as I know, it's only been used in the past couple of years. There are 3 of us on the board who conceived w/ frozen donor oocytes; Gab and I have already delivered and Iz is still pg. If your friend does have frozen oocytes available, then there would be additional costs involved in the fertilization and monitoring, as well as your meds just like for a FET. Expect about a 50% fertilization rate.
I'd talk to an RE about the possibility of using your friend's eggs and see what sort of costs to expect.
