CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS WINNIPEG BREAST CANCER PATIENT WITH COMPRESSION GARMENTS

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Winnipeg breast cancer patient.

She has been self employed for almost two decades cleaning homes.  She has always tried to do her best in life by keeping her bills paid and giving back to her community through volunteer work. 
Her diagnosis came out of the blue - the result of a mammogram and biopsy.  Her visit to CancerCare came at a time when she was happily anticipating the birth of a grandchild.  In her own words "My daughter had baby...I was so happy but so sad with emotions".  Very quickly surgery ensued. 

Being self employed cleaning homes, her income was never substantial.  She did not opt for private insurance should a medical condition occur.  She has had to purchase compression garments to be worn post surgery for 6 weeks or so and the cost is a financial stressor to her. 

Cancer Cancer has provided her with the funds for her compression garments.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS RURAL CERVICAL CANCER PATIENT WITH URBAN ACCOMMODATION EXPENSE

Cancer Crossing has assisted a woman with cervical cancer from the Parkland region of Manitoba. She is receiving concurrent chemotherapy and radiation and needs to be in Winnipeg to receive her treatment. She is staying at a facility that has reduced rates for patients who live in the rural areas, but need to be in Winnipeg for treatment. Prior to getting ill she worked in retail. Her husband was self employed. She has applied for EI sickness benefits but her application seems to have hit a roadblock. Since her husband was self employed, he did not contribute to EI and he has since lost his income as he has taken time away from working to look after her. Not receiving any benefits has made it very difficult for them to manage their expenses. Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to towards her accommodation and we hope that she can start receiving her benefits very soon. Cancer Crossing helps those who 'fall between the cracks'.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS METASTATIC LUNG CANCER PATIENT IN MANITOBA'S FAR NORTH

It's been awhile since we have posted how we have helped cancer patients. We have been very busy in that regard and are far behind in our posts - let's start catching you up.

Cancer Crossing has assisted a gentleman in Manitoba's far north. He is 66 years old, single and has metastatic lung cancer. His only income is OAS and CPP.
He cannot work to supplement his income due to his treatments and shortness of breath. OAS and CPP are not enough to keep him financially viable and he is struggling. Cancer Crossing has provided him with some assistance with the new expenses he has incurred with this cancer diagnosis and treatment regimen.
