We just found out today, through vague phone calls that my son's paternal grandfather from Michigan was dying. Then my mother had a long phone call
when he phoned while the children were out. Apparently he has diabetes, and has no insulin, no pain killers, no doctor, and he said he was told he
couldn't get medicine without a doctor, and a woman is watching over him as he is dying for no reason other than having no insulin for his
We have no resources in our family, my ex is working and had talked of trying to get him a house here in Canada and pay for it in the past, but this
is ridiculous. There has to be a way to ensure he gets help. So far, no one seems have an answer on what to do.
I've been researching for what to do without insurance and doctor with diabetes and found a bunch of procedures here:
This seems to be a list of clinics.
From what I'm gathering the procedure would be akin to going to a clinic, a doctor, or the hospital, and getting several months worth of samples of
insulin....then, applying for some kind of aid for having the medicine and testing kits from a variety of sources.
I don't even know if they have a vehicle.
I was yelling from the background, PHONE AN AMBULANCE THEY CAN'T REFUSE TO TREAT HIM.
But this is the US where they might refuse to treat people...
I would really appreciate some rather fast advice on how to go about getting him treated, getting medication in the meantime and going about applying
for whatever aid they have in covering his diabetes.
Thank you in advance if you can advise.
