My father, a Korean Vet was awarded 100% benefits last year. Several months after receiving his monies, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He passed away in Feb. 2010. My mother continued to receive his benefits for 2 months after. Then on the 3rd month, they were taken away. We were told because he died of Lymphoma. Ok, I understand that, but, he was awarded his 100% benefits BEFORE he got the Cancer. My Mother appealed it, and was denied last week. What are the chances of re-appealing or hiring a lawyer? Does she have any chance of receiving maybe half of his benefits? Can someone help us???? Please!!
If an attoreny will take your case with no money down then try that, I doubt very much the VA will take care of your mother, they do everything possible not to take care of the veterans themselves. The VA is a for profit orgasnization, they are underhand, lyinmg, and for a lack of a better word they are compelete assholes.
Thank you Summer. We're going on a year and a couple of months. Still nothing. She's not giving up though. I really pray something happens.
