Re: 3f8

To get the visa to come to the US for treatment you need about $300,000 -- this is required by the US State Dept. (not by Sloan-Kettering).

There is a section on the Sloan-Kettering website with information for International patients: http://www.mskcc.org/mskcc/html/3226.cfm

Hope this helps,

Re: 3f8


I'm from England and we've been travelling to New York for 3F8 for my 1 year old son. We contacted the International Centre at Memorial Sloan Kettering and they advised us that the deposit required for the 3F8 antibodies was $250,000 which we transferred.

I don't know about Poland but we didn't need to get a visa. I think you can stay in America for 3 months before you need to get a visa but please check this out. We travel to New York for 1 week every month for first 2 months then the treatment is every 8 weeks.

We started treatment in October 2009.

I hope this helps - Good luck
