Not to take care of her, she may be able to visit.

She can apply for a tourist visa to visit.

My wife, a US citizen has stage 4 cancer and would like to bring her sister here from the Philippines to help take care of her. Is it possible? Thanks

You do know that health insurance and healthcare in the US for cancer amount to astronomical costs? Your sister-in-law can visit, but she can't stay permanently and her health will get to a point where she needs professionals, not just her sister or a family member taking care of her.

My reading is that it’s the wife , the USC , who has cancer ... not the sister who is trying to come visit

Yikes I need more sleep. In any case, the sister can't stay. "Taking care of OP's wife" could be seen as unauthorized work.

OP shows PI as Country involved.

Read the following website

 

 https://www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/use-parole-under-immigration-law

 

it states:

What is Humanitarian Parole?

While humanitarian parole is explicitly authorized by the INA, there is no statutory or regulatory definition of an “urgent humanitarian reason.” USCIS has stated, however, that it will consider factors such as the time-sensitivity of the circumstances and the degree of suffering that may result if parole is not authorized. According to USCIS, examples of urgent humanitarian circumstances could include, but are not limited to:

  • Receiving critical medical treatment in the United States;
  • Becoming an organ donor to an individual in the United States;
  • Visiting or caring for a sick relative in the United States;
  • Attending a funeral or settling the affairs of a deceased relative in the United States; or
  • Coming to the United States for protection from targeted or individualized harm.

Humanitarian Parole is pretty much a hail mary option. It is an option nonetheless.

Note that generally one should show that they have exhausted all other legal options first.

F4 from PH is about 22 years wait right now, with 25-30+ years being likely for a new applicant.
