My sister was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma and had to have part of her left hand removed. She went to oncologist today and was told that she will need 6 rounds of chemo with 4 days of inpatient chemo every 21 days, along with localized radiation. I am concerned for her because she lives in Mississippi and is on Medicaid. They wont cover any rehabilitation for her hand and are trying to locate a sarcoma specialist around her area. They really wanted to send her to Houston, TX, but they dont take Medicaid. I am so afraid that she wont recieve the medical care she deserves because she is low income. She just had a baby 3 months ago and has a 2 year old. I had to fly my daughter out there to help her with her children after the amputation to help. I need to know if there is any help her any where. Please let me know if some one has any information.
