melli111475 Posted February 11, 2006 Share Posted February 11, 2006 My name is Melissa and I was wondering if anyone one had any information on how to find out if there are any website for funds available for things as skilled nurses or home health aids. See my mother was diganosed with Lung Cancer (Stage 4) in September of 2004. After being diagnosed, her doctors found that it had moved to her brain. In November of '04 they sucessfully removed the tumor and began her on chemotherpy. Throughtout the past 18 months they have switched treatments on her about 5 times cause the cancer has spread to the liver. Last Monday I had to rush my mother to the hospital because she was have sevre seziures. When we got the results of the CT, her oncologist said that she has 2 more tumors in her brain. They began radiation on her yesterday and she will be getting out of the hospital soon. When she gets out, it looks like she will be needing a nurse or home aid to help her during the day. We have insurance for her, however it does not cover such things as nurses, home care, or even nursing homes. So I was hoping that someone might have some information that could help with this. I would be very grateful for any kind of information. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
