CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS GLIOBLASTOMA PATIENT WITH TRAVEL AND MEDICATION COSTS

Cancer Crossing has assisted a rural Manitoba gentleman with Glioblastoma.

He has made numerous trips to Winnipeg for surgery, chemo and radiation and remains on chemo so the travel back and forth remains.  

Accessing his medication, travel costs to Winnipeg and back and a recent ambulance bill are now a financial burden.

He is currently on CPP, is collecting OAS and GIS and his wife is receiving long term disability for her own health difficulties and spousal allowance but these supports are insufficient given the extra costs he has been incurring.

Cancer Crossing has made a contribution towards this patients medication and travel costs.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS SOUTHWESTERN MANITOBA LYMPHOMA PATIENT WITH TRAVEL AND HOSPITAL PARKING

Cancer Crossing has assisted a gentleman from the southwest corner of Manitoba.  He has a relapsed lymphoma and has been admitted to hospital in Winnipeg for a stem cell transplant.  Once discharged, he will need to remain in Winnipeg for at least six weeks.

He is self-employed and has no sick benefits.  His wife is applying for EI caregiver benefit so income is very limited.  He and his wife have secured subsidized accommodation in Winnipeg and are doing all they can to find sources of financial aid as they still need to maintain their home in rural Manitoba while in Winnipeg.  

Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to this patients cost of travel to Winnipeg for treatment and hospital parking as he is struggling greatly.  We hope his treatment is successful and that he is successful in finding other sources of financial support to keep him and his wife fiscally above water.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS CERVICAL CANCER PATIENT WITH GROCERIES

Hi again everyone, as previously mentioned, during the pandemic we continue to assist cancer patients who are struggling financially, we are however, still slow posting about support we have provided. 
The following is another support we provided prior to the start of Covid-19 in our region.

Cancer Crossing has assisted a northern Manitoba woman with cervical cancer who is receiving treatment in Winnipeg for six weeks.  She is staying in subsidized housing while in the city.  She is retired and lives on CPP and OAS but those funds are exhausted and she needs help with groceries.  Her advocate suggested that rather than providing her with a cheque, gift cards to a grocery would be the better way to help. We understand that every persons situation is different and people are complex. Cancer Crossing provided grocery store gift cards to her advocate who would ensure they are used for food.
