Why don’t you inquire in hospitals if they know of any treatment centers that offer grants, or those that allow the patients to work for them instead of having to pay in cash? At least then your daughter will also get to improve her sense of responsibility. Check out the phone directory and ask the various treatment centers what payment modes they accept, and if their rates are within your budget.

Good luck and I hope your daughter recovers soon.
