Hello everyone, My sister lives in Lagos and has just undergone extensive chemotherapy and Radiotherapy in Lisbon for cancer of the osoephagus.She lives alone in Espiche and I live in France. I want to find out if there is any support groups out there that could help emotionally and possibly  financially until she gets on her feet. She is self-employed and although she has had excellent health care in Portugal, does nor appear to be able to get financial state support. She had thought of returning to Scotland where she worked and paid taxes for thirty years but evidently has to have an address for 6 months before before being eligble for state benefits, Because her small business was an Animal Rescue charity she has still many animals dependent on her for their survival and does not feel she can abandon them. Catch 22! We are doing our best as a family to help out financially but due to our own family committments are unable to get there as often as we would like.  Can anyone suggest a support organisation or if they live locally offter to visit? She can't eat as she has a tracheotomy and is fed through her stomach but a visit from someone to chat to would be wonderful as she is a vibrant, intelligent human being.  If you can help, please contact me through Angloinfo for her address and details or please sent me an email contact where I can talk to someone .  Thank You  Tara Kelly

Has any expat ladies been pregnant and had their baby here in the Algarve? I am in two minds as to go through the whole public healthcare system here and go back to the Uk to have my baby . I am nearly 3 months pregnant. I cant afford to do it private. Can anyone explain what Portimao hospital is like regarding Obstetrics etc? And do they allocate you a midwife like they do back in the UK? : )
