CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS RURAL MANITOBA HEAD AND NECK CANCER PATIENT WITH TRAVEL EXPENSES FOR MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Western Manitoba woman who is experiencing the recurrence of head and neck cancer. The original cancer diagnosis and surgery was in mid 2018. She has had surgery for the 2019 recurrence and is anticipating six weeks of radiation treatment. She has made numerous trips to Winnipeg and back for appointments and tests and the cost of travel and accommodation has accumulated to the point that she is financially stressed.

Her sick benefit has expired and she has done a thorough search of potential sources of support for her particular situation. She is receiving CPP Disability. EIA is not an option at this time and she remains in a financial pinch.
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution towards her travel expenses to Winnipeg and back for her medical appointments during these challenging times.

Cancer Crossing helps those who 'fall between the cracks'.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS RURAL STAGE IV LUNG CANCER PATIENT WITH TRANSPORTATION SERVICE FEE

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Manitoba Interlake woman with Stage IV lung cancer.
She requires a trip to Winnipeg to meet with her Oncologist to review treatment options and will need to travel to Winnipeg for future appointments as well.
Her husband has health issues of his own and his care has exhausted a significant portion of their household income leaving very limited funds for rent and basic necessities.
She would like to sign up for a transportation service to access her appointments in Winnipeg but the fee of $200 is beyond her reach.

Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to this patients transportation service fee so that she can access her appointments in Winnipeg.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS MANITOBA PARKLAND LUNG CANCER PATIENT WITH TRAVEL COSTS FOR MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS

Update - our Cancer Crossing website is still down! We are getting a new web host and as volunteers, it's taking us a bit longer to get it back up. It will be back soon!

Meanwhile, Cancer Crossing has assisted another cancer patient who has fallen between the cracks.
He is a gentleman from the Parkland region of Manitoba.
He was getting by financially, but then he required trips to Brandon for a biopsy, then follow up, and now surgery for a lung cancer.
The cost of these trips have moved him from 'getting by' financially, to now experiencing considerable financial hardship.
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to this patients travelling costs to help alleviate some of the financial pressure he is experiencing - he has enough to be concerned about having had a cancer diagnosis, and now the anticipation of surgery.
