Thalas Care in France!
« on: September 29, 2012, 08:23:41 PM »
Hello everyone! :)

Just wondering if anyone has any information about the thalassemia care in France. I'm going to further my studies there next year for 3 years!
I've never actually had a transfusion done outside my pediatric ward. Even though I'm already turning 19 in October, I just love the doctors and nurses who raised me up to actually transfer to the adult ward :P
So I really have no clues about the procedures of getting care abroad and the cost involved.
So far I can't find any information about care in France as everything is in french. (I have yet to master their language!)

In Malaysia, where I come from :D, I take desferal for the excess iron and the government has been so kind as to give it out for freeeeeeeeeeeeee :D :D hahaha.
That's another thing that has my parents a little worried. The cost of desferal in France! I use quite a lot now, which would easily cost us more than MYR1000 (USD320++) each month.

So any and all information pertaining to thalassemia care in France would be much appreciated :)

I really want to try and make sure my parents aren't so broke/worried because of me! They've took such good care of me all these years. Time to take over. haha :D
Everyday is amazing, if you want it to be.

We have this information for thal care in Paris.

Hopital de jour de Medecine

I believe that university students at public universities in Europe who are from other countries can participate in the national health care plan at no cost. I would suggest contacting the university and find out if this is true for students at that specific university.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
