Travelling to the US - hopefully

Before my incurable sclc diagnosis last month, I had booked a holiday in San Francisco over Easter 2020. The question I have is has anyone in this group managed to get insurance for the US while undergoing active treatment.  Part of the problem for me is that this is my second cancer diagnosis in 3 years (previously early stage endometrial cancer - successfully dealt with through surgery) Any advice gratefully received.

This could be tricky. Have you looked on the travel insurance community, there is a lot of information on there about how different people have obtained cover from a multitude of insurers at an acceptable (to them) price.

I hope you get sorted.

Thanks. I am looking on there too. But I was hoping there might be someone on this group who had succeeded in getting insurance for the US with lung cancer. The combination of an incurable lung cancer and the US with its astronomical healthcare costs which seems to scare the insurers off!
