Any possibility to bring my Mom from Poland to US for cancer care?
I’m a breast cancer survivor. I came to this site 9 years ago and read posts and articles daily, posted frequently. I am lucky that I live in the US, have health insurance and my cancer was caught early.
My Mom lives in Poland and two days ago she was diagnosed and told me about it.
She noticed a lump right after Christmas, it took this long to get the biopsy results. Still waiting on tomography results. The ultrasound did show affected lymph node. Chest X-ray shows a spot on her lung.
I am the sole caregiver to my husband who had a stroke 18 months ago, and has Parkinson’s. I have nobody to take care of him even to be able to go visit my Mom, let alone care for her in Poland. I would love to bring her to the US for treatment. This way I could care for her and she would have a better level of medical care and a fighting chance for a longer life. But I’m not a millionaire and I don’t have resources to cover the cost of cancer care, even if I sold my house.
I probably already know the answer, but is anyone aware of any programs or assistance that would help cover the costs of treatment for my Mom, who is not a US resident?
I am just so heartbroken, sad, desperate.
