My wife Jenny aged 76 was active, fit and enjoyed excellent health when she was diagnosed with bowel cancer late last year. She is now 14 weeks into a 30 weeks weekly chemotherapy course (fluouracil) and she is bearing up bravely and quite well it seems to the unpleasantness involved in the treatment. We were booked to go to Africa in January 2019 but were forced to cancel that. We are also booked to go on the "Three Queens" cruises (New York to London, London and return to Norway and vicinity and then London to various Mediterranean ports and return, then a week in Spain and fly home to Sydney. Jenny will complete her chemo on 28 May 2019 and we are to fly out to New York almost 12 weeks later, on August 16, and return to Sydney on October 03. Jenny expects that she will be well recovered from the effects of the chemo by then. However, travel insurers are saying otherwise, claimiing her immune system will still be compromised and are declining her travel insurance. we would appreciate help and advice on this ASAP. regards David
