How ironic that they have to turn to a worldly arrangement to generate funds to get back to Australia.
However, it has left me wondering, when they left Australia for the USA, did the funding they had from Australia not cover the return trip?
I am astonished that they traveled to another country for treatment that was not available at home - yet had not considered then how they would return home again. In the absence of public funding, how did they think they'd return back home?
Or had her parents been granted permanent residence status in the US so they do not actually need to return to Australia but want to do so for their dying daughter?
