Let sick 82 years old woman stay in Sweden with her only daughter
Nadezda's only relatives, her daughter, her son-in-law and grandchild live in Sweden since 1990 and she used to visit them until she got leukemia (CLL). This decease made her very sensitive for every infection and she stayed in the hospital many times especially after travelling.
Her age, her illness and her only relatives in Sweden who could look after her made her to apply for permission to stay in Sweden. The Migration Board replied to this application negatively. They argued that the relation between Nadezda and her only daughter is not close enough and that her illness is not deadly.
