Our expert says:
I think that it is a good idea for your mother to come to South Africa. You can start by consulting a private oncologist. He/she can then refer her to the oncology department at Tygerberg Hospital. I am not sure about the costs involved but the oncologist will be able to assist you with the information. Many people who do have medical aid, are not always covered and I am therefore, sure that the oncologist will be able to give you the best advice.
