My dad (77 yrs young) has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which has spread to his bones. He is undegoing treatment (chemo) currently. He has been given 12 months more or less. My brother & I along with our spouses would like to take a trip in January with our parents. The intent of the trip would be to spend time together without the distractions of our everyday lives and spend quality time with our dad (and Mom). We have discussed going on a cruise. None of us have been on a cruise before & we thought it might be a good fit for us, especially since Dad could nap whenever he felt like it & partake in whatever activities he felt up to. Also, going somewhere warm is sort of a must in January. :)
I have been told that getting travel insurance is difficult for cancer patients, but after doing a bit of research I am finding that travel insurance is available but will not cover any cancer related issues. I must add that my hubby is an RN and more than capable to administering meds, etc.
Does this sound like a good idea? Crazy? Too much for my dad? Or something that would benefit us all?
Really would like some feedback from those who have been there.
