Nadezda has Leukemia and gets medication every day. She is 82 years old and has a number of diseases, some age related and some due a tough shingles (bältros) she had suffered during the summer of 2012.
Nadezdas only relatives, her daughter (Zinaida), her son-in-law (Anatoliy) and grandchild (Julia) live in Sweden since 1990. Nadezdas great grandchild is expected in March 2013.
The Swedish migration board has denied Nadezdas application to stay her last years in Sweden with her relatives. Swedish migration law considers relationship between mother and daughter not close enough to let her stay here. Swedish migration board says that the diseases Nadezd has are not deadly.
Nadezda has been taken care of by her daughter in her daughters house all the time.
