Hi, I'm new here and would appreciate some help. Our 27 year old daughter has advanced brain cancer and is now living with us here in France along with her 2 children so we can care for them all in our home. We would like to know anything about cancer support, treatment, financial benefits, anything we should know about. We will soon have financial difficulties running the household on just my husband's UK pension so can my daughter claim anything here? I'd like also to know which is the best consultant and hospital to take her to that specialises in tumours of the brain. She's on chemo at the moment which we get by going back monthly to the UK but we want to do this here. Our own doctor here is willing to refer her but I'm scared about changing specialists. Plus, in the UK we had a Macmillan nurse- is there the equivalent here? We are in dept 46.
