i have friend with a 19 yr old daughter who found out last saturday that she has stage 2 cancer. one problem is the mom is divorced from a guy who doesn't pay child support much less carry insurance for his kids. she has applied for medicaid or medicare. i am not sure which is for her case. but it is government and they move slow. we have tried to find a hospital who will accept her without the insurance. we have tried st judes, but they don't deal with her type of cancer because they consider it an adult cancer. we've tried m d anderson in houston tx. no insurance no care. we have also tried the cooks childrens hospital in ft worth tx. anyone have suggestions or know of a hospital who would accept her.
