During this hospital admission, Melba was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer. Unfortunately du to her comorbidities Melba is not a candidate for any surgical intervention or chemo/radiation therapy, making this diagnosis terminal. As such, I have been involved in assisting with her discharge and care plan post hospital.
Melba is a mother of 5 adult children, as well as a sister, cousin and aunt to numerous family members across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Being that she is unable to care for herself at home Melba’s children in Winnipeg have graciously offered for her to move there to live with them, specifically her daughter Sandra.
We are requesting a flight for Melba from Edmonton to Winnipeg as well as for her to be accompanied by her daughter, Sandra. Melba would also like to bring her beloved cat “Princess” with her to Winnipeg and we are hoping she too could be accommodated on the flight. As we are still making arrangements with family and service providers in Winnipeg we can be somewhat flexible with the flight date, however we would hope that all the arrangements are made within approximately one week and Melba can be on her way home to her family.
