I suggest that you get in touich with a VA Social worker for help they can be a big help to get things moving. For those who don't know everyone who goes to the VA has a Socail Worker most just don't know who they are.

Pete, Thank you again!!!

I would have not thought of the Social Worker and i'm sure my brother doesn't know he has one. I am going with him to the VA on Monday. We will look them up.

I don't know what i would do if it wasn't for you guys and gals here on hadit. I know i can could on you all for the answer.

Thanks for being here.

Jessie

Forget the Social Worker. Get a 21-4138 and a doctor's diagnosis of the medical condition. Put your brothers age down and then tell VA that his prognosis because of age and the diagnosis of the medical condition require you to ask for a 21Q which is an emergency claim. They should tell you within TWO days max if they can process his claim overnight. I do it in Phoenix, and have had great results. It has to be an emergency on your brothers part which it is and make sure you tell them it is liver cancer. Hopefully the doctor will cooperate and write you a good diagnosis and recommend that the VA act promptly. The VA can be a pain but they are also very helpful in this regard. Remember it all rest with the doctors statement. Good luck and email me if you need anything further. Q

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
