    My niece has cancer and is required to travel from California to MD Anderson in Houston frequently for treatment . I can't afford to give her money. I would like to donate my miles but it's expensive. Is there any help from United for these kinds of situations?

    You can book a ticket with your miles from your MP account in her name. No need to transfer the miles to her.

    What type of cancer is your niece being treated for, if you don't mind me asking? MD Anderson has a really good reputation.

    You might find some help to get her there from LIVESTRONG (www.livestrong.com). They have a navigation services department that helps people afford the correct treatment for cancer.

    It has been 30 days since Moang has visited us, sure hope Cancer is not contagious.

    It is alarming the number of people developing cancer, over the years many cases have been put in remission,and yet for many their is just nothing can be done,

    I have lost more than one friend to it,

    Mpmang, as we approach Thansgiving, I wonder if you are going to return,

    With just one visit, one request, should we set a plate.

    They are right. You can buy a ticket for your niece using you miles so she can go to California. That will helped a lot for her treatment.
