Posted on 11/27/2007 12:46:44 PM PST by MarineMom613
Sorry for long title and caps. I am typing thru tears. My mom is dying of pancreatic cancer. She raised my son and I got thru to Red Cross & Hospice and they approved it. Military is denying it saying she is not loco parentis. On top of that nobody knows how to do the paper work. My son is her baby (30 Year Old Marine) and she is all she wants. Seems to be holding on for him. She just took a drastic turn for the worst yesterday. I need a congressman/senator anyone who I can call and try to push this through. I am literally BEGGING. I am losing my best friend and I need My Son home but More importantly, SHE needs him. She is basically unconcious but everytime she hears a mans voice she screams out that Rob is Here Bring him to me now. Dont' know how much longer she has. Any help appreciated... Prayers too!. He has served 2 tours in Iraq and has made the Military his career and he is lost right now. Please. He is in Camp Lejuene, NC and is scheduled to go out on a training excerise tomorrow on ship. Hospice and Red Cross pushed it through and Military is pushing it somewhere else.
Anybody have ideas on who to call or how to help 613 out?
Call your Congressman and local News outlet
Can you help or have any knowledge?
At this point, I’m not sure what you can do. Your Senators, Hillary and Chuckie may be your only hope.........
Praying for strength and healing for your mom, and favor with the brass.
Have you tried your Rep in Congress, Mom? Please keep us posted. Sending prayers your way.
Prayers for you all are on the way.
Bump for MarineMom613’s mother, son, and this whole situation. I am praying for you-—have no idea how else to help but I know the Lord will lead you.
Did Veterans Affairs/NCDVA help you?
Did they tell you she wasn’t immediate family and that’s why... or what?
Hit all the representatives, in writing and call/fax.
Other links on the site:
Call the VFW and DAV at the VA to get some resources as well.
The Red Cross is responsible for verifying to the military that your mother is in poor condition. I would call the Red Cross.
I’m sending the story to Mark Levin. He’s very pro-active in contacting D.C. on the issues.
You might tell the Red Cross that he is needed as a pallbearer at her funeral—even though she is still alive at this point.
Did you tell the Red Cross that she raised your son? That your son lived with her for any length of time? Just suggestions, hope they work.
I’m so sorry. I can’t be of help, but I hope and pray that someone here will be able to assist you.
I just called the Chaplain’s office at LeJuene and they said to call RED CROSS ARMED FORCES EMERGENCY SERVICE CENTER: 1-877-272-7337.
