Thanks Danielle!
Kicking myself that I didn't join this forum earlier, it's awesome. I've already learnt a lot since joining up last week.  :happyyes

I changed my mind about Canada, going to do a short tour of your city, New York instead, can't wait!

take care x

Well I'm glad you're here now!  That's all that matters.   :biggrin

I'm sure you've made a great choice with coming to New York!  You'll have a great time, here!  :happyyes

Can we switch for a while?  I'd love to visit Australia!  :rotfl

Hi Niyati,
in US I know a person who came from India for higher studies and got her treatment covered through insurance. In US there is no restriction for people with thal to apply for student visa. if interested, you can PM me and I will connect you to that person.

Bostonian,

Do you know if there's any help available to pay for transfusion costs during a short visit to the US? I was told of an Indian woman today whose company is sending her to the US for a few weeks and she will be here long enough to need a transfusion. Her company is not aware of her thalassemia, so she cannot ask them for any help, as it could cause her dismissal.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Andy,
Unfortunately I don't know if there is any help available to pay for transfusion cost during a short visit. But thinking about it a bit more, I will think the person can call the Thalassemia/sickle-cell treatment center in the city she is going and talk to them directly to find out what options she can have.
