CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS PROSTATE CANCER PATIENT WITH PHYSIOTHERAPY

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Western Manitoba gentleman with prostate cancer.

He had complications post surgery which required two more surgeries. He may require radiation but that is yet to be determined.
This man has worked with the same employer for many years and worked up until his initial surgery, but to date has been unable to return to work and is receiving disability through his employer.
He has done everything to help himself including moving closer to the location of his medical appointments which is also where his family and supports are located.
He was referred to physiotherapy and he has Blue Cross, but now he has reached the yearly maximum. His physiotherapist has recommended further sessions but he is unsure how he will manage the costs until his benefits renew.
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to assist with his physiotherapy expenses.

CANCER CROSSING HELPS WITH MEDICATION COSTS AND NUTRIENT RICH FOODS

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Winnipeg gentleman with metastatic lung cancer.

He is undergoing chemotherapy and radiation and is currently on regular EI benefits. At this level of income, he can barely cover basic living expenses but he also has medications and is trying to eat a proper diet while on chemotherapy. He has applied for EIA Disability but is waiting for approval. In the meantime, he has been relying on soup kitchens and food banks for food donations but unfortunately, the food he receives from those sources are not nutrient rich as would be preferable for someone on chemo.
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to this patient for medication and nutritional foods hoping that his EIA Disability starts soon.

CANCER CROSSING PROVIDES 'FLEXIBLE FUNDING' FOR FAMILY OF YOUNG WOMAN WITH ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA

Cancer Crossing has assisted a southwest Manitoba family whose young adult daughter has acute myeloid leukemia. 
Her mother has been using her sick time from work to be in Winnipeg with her daughter, while her daughter has a stem cell transplant - which means a month long stay in the city.  This extended period from work and the expense of staying in Winnipeg is causing the family financial distress.
Post discharge, she would like to obtain a scooter for her daughter so that she can begin to get outside while being independently mobile.  Cancer Crossing has made a contribution towards the cost of the scooter.   If her daughter feels she can do without a scooter, the financial assistance will go towards the cost incurred to stay in Winnipeg for the month. 
Cancer Crossing is pleased to be able to be a 'flexible funder'.  We understand circumstances can change quickly and we are not going to take our funding away should the daughter not require a scooter.  We are happy to have the contribution remain with the family and in this particular case, be used for travel expenses.
