Have her call her Congressman immediately. They can not sign a death warrent.
Have her appeal the medicaid decision. As soon as an appeal is activiated they have to give her, her medication till the hearing has been conducted. If it goes her way she wins.
Have her go to the E.R, and tell them she is very sick. They will send a social worker down to assist her.They have an in at Medicaid !!
Also is she on Social Security? If not get on it.
