My patient has recently received a bone marrow transplant and will require a caregiver. His wife will take on this role, however she is currently back home as she had been waiting for patient to be discharged until coming. The couple is experiencing financial crisis as patient has been unable to work for quite some time and patient’s wife unfortunately is now dealing with her own new cancer diagnosis. I would like to advocate that patient’s wife be considered for funding for a flight down here to be with him. For our patients, a caregiver is absolutely essential, they provide daily monitoring, emotional and practical support for patients as they go through the very tough recovery process after bone marrow transplant.
