My dad died as a tourist
by Gema Delgadillo
My dad was a Mexican citizen and got his visa to visit me here in California to spend Thanksgiving togheter. After a couple days he suffered a hearth attack and died the same day he arrived to the hospital. After 35 min. the doctors gave us the notice that they've done all possible things to resucite him. After a month I received an outrageous amount due for services, around 10,000 dollars. I know he received help and I know that hospital expenses are high. My mom does not have money to pay neither do I. I tried to contact the hospital letting them know that. aND with the effort of my brothers and sisters we can do a monthly payment of 100 dollars, even though this would take for ever at least we are trying to pay the debt. Well I have sent a couple of letters to the hospital and some payments. The checks have been cashed but I haven't received any response to settle this account and my question is WHAT SHOULD I DO?
