I have a friend who lives in Canada. She is around my age (59 or thereabouts).. She has an ovarian cyst that needs surgery. The health care system is saying they won't operate because they think it's too dangerous to operate. She has not let me know how big the cyst is, but I am sure she is post-menopause. She has Tpe II diabetes. She has some major stresses in her life.
1. A grown special needs son,
She wants the operation because of her son. She is pretty sure the cyst needs to come out and that if she weren't poor it would.
Anyway, I am wondering if there are charities which would help her with the operation.
She would be willing to go outside Canada for treatment.
Thanks, you guys were helpful before!
