ELMHURST, Queens —  It is the last wish of a dying mother.

Darshan Kaur,60, has stage four cardiac sarcoma.

She's in hospice care inside her Elmhurst apartment surrounded by all of her loving family. All but one.

Her oldest daughter, Harinder Kaur, 36, lives in New Delhi with her husband and two children.

Her emergency visa application has been turned down twice by the U.S. Embassy in India.

"Both times the consulate told her she wouldn't be coming back to India if they gave her a visa even though we gave a letter saying my father takes full responsibility for her return," Preet Singh told PIX11.

The 22-year-old son reached out to PIX11 after a series of reports we did last February when Christopher Robinson, also in end of life care, had one last wish: to see his sister who lives in Guyana.

Once again, the U.S. Embassy, this time in Guyana, rejected the sister's emergency visa application until PIX 11 asked for Senator Chuck Schumer's help.

The brother and sister were reunited just weeks before Christopher passed away.

PIX11 has contacted Senator Schumer who is now working on getting Harinder Kaur's visa application approved as quickly as possible.

"It would be a good thing for my mother to see all her children together in her last moments," Preet told PIX11. "So I think it's really important for her emotionally."
