CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS WINNIPEG WOMAN IN TREATMENT FOR RECURRENT LUNG CANCER, WITH OVERDUE UTILITY BILL

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Winnipeg woman with recurrent lung cancer.

Her initial treatment plan called for a chemotherapy regimen after which she would return to part time work.  Her return to work was foiled when she was put on maintenance chemo which has left her fatigued and experiencing intermittent nausea. 
She is 66 and has been working part time to supplement her OAS and small CPP in order to keep her bills up to date.  She had no workplace sick benefit and the 15 weeks EI sick benefit has ended. She has cut out any expense that is not an absolute necessity.  She has a child in university who cannot afford to help her out. 
She is a hardworking and proud single woman who does not like to ask for help, but she has been unable to find part time work she can manage and is falling behind on her bills, resulting in a growing cloud of financial distress.
Cancer Crossing has provided a contribution to assist her with her overdue utility bill.

CANCER CROSSING CHOSEN AS BENEFICIARY OF A 'COST AND CAUSE' FUNDRAISER!

Cancer Crossing has been the beneficiary of a ‘Cost and Cause’ Fundraiser!  In case you are not familiar with these events, here is the scenario:

Lindsey Marie is a Winnipeg breast cancer patient.  She is a young woman with two young children.  Her friends and family got together and put on a ‘Cost and Cause’ Fundraiser on Saturday, May 11th at a local community centre. 
The proceeds from the event are to go to the extra expenses Lindsey is facing due to her cancer treatment.  That is the ‘Cost’ part. 
Lindsey then decided that a portion of the proceeds raised would go to a ‘Cause’ and in her case, she chose Cancer Crossing as the cause to support. 

See photo from the event with Dr. Tse Li Luk (our Founder), Lindsey and her beautiful children, and one of our Outreach Volunteers, Kristine.  Lindsey is such a kind and caring young woman who sees beyond herself with concern regarding the community at large.  We cannot thank her enough for thinking of us as her 'Cause'.

If you know anyone with cancer who is struggling financially, please have them contact Cancer Crossing and we’ll see what we can do to help.  You might also think of putting on one of these events for your friend/family member.  Not only will it help them financially but you know the phrase, ‘it takes a Village to raise a child’, the same can be said for cancer patients.  The more friends and family who pitch in and offer support (in any way really) provide a circle of care (a Village if you will)  around the person – at a time when it is needed the most. 

Our contact information is info@cancercrossing.com

CANCER CROSSING HAS ASSISTED PATIENT WITH CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY WHEELS OF HOPE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM FEE

Due to fatigue from the cancer and treatment, mobility issues and financial struggles, he is finding it difficult to get to his appointments at CancerCare.
He was referred to the Canadian Cancer Society Wheels of Hope transportation service program. He could not afford their fee so they made an exception and gave him a discount. He cannot afford even the discounted fee, so Cancer Crossing has covered the fee on his behalf.
