Hello Jennyc355

I am really sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis, I would like to send you a virtual hug to let you know you are not alone. I hope your husband could be transferred to a hospital closer to you.

If you are an Australian resident, please call our support line on 131120 to talk to one of our health care professional, and find out if any of our services is suitable for you.


Warm regards
