CANCER CROSSING CONTINUES TO ASSIST CANCER PATIENTS DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS, ASSISTS BRAIN CANCER PATIENT WITH TRAVEL FOR RADIATION

Hello everyone -
We wanted to update you on what is happening with Cancer Crossing during these unprecedented and difficult times.

Cancer Crossing is continuing to accept requests for assistance and we are continuing to process them. The process is all done remotely so we can continue to help cancer patients who are struggling financially as a result of their cancer diagnosis and subsequent cancer related expenses that have shifted them from 'managing financially' to 'struggling' financially.
We continue to be a group of volunteers so you might notice we are operating a little slower right now. Everyone across the globe is trying to adjust daily to new circumstances and that of course, includes our group. We hope that you and yours are safe and virus free and continue to practice the recommendations as set forth by the medical professionals to keep us that way.

Cancer Crossing has assisted a northern Manitoba gentleman with brain cancer. He is unable to work, is single and has no children. He is living with his parents at this time.
He is able to access chemotherapy in his home community but will require radiation treatments in Winnipeg. He must somehow make his way to Winnipeg for radiation treatments and is struggling financially, wondering how he will be able to make this happen.
Cancer Crossing has provided him with some assistance towards his travel costs to Winnipeg.

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

Please support our cause so we can continue to assist cancer patients! We are receiving many requests.
Cheques may be mailed to Cancer Crossing Inc., 1-1660 Kenaston Blvd., PO Box 70029, Winnipeg, MB R3P 0X6 or you can contribute by PayPal on our website.

He and his wife have a limited fixed income including retirement pension and one on disability.  They have endured significant financial hardship with travel expenses which have accumulated during his diagnostic workup.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS MANITOBA OSTEOSARCOMA PATIENT WITH MEALS WHILE IN VANCOUVER GETTING SURGERY NOT AVAILABLE IN MANITOBA

Cancer Crossing has assisted a gentleman living in a town close to Winnipeg. He has osteosarcoma and has been receiving in-patient chemotherapy. He needs to travel to Vancouver to see an orthopedic surgeon as he needs surgery that is not available in Manitoba. Post surgery, he will have further chemotherapy.
Manitoba Health will reimburse him for his air travel to Vancouver but he is responsible for his own accommodation and meals while in BC. He has made plans to stay in the cheapest medical hostel he can find.
His EI sickness benefits are about to expire and there will be a transition period before his long term disability benefits start. Even with benefits, the reduction in his income will make it difficult to pay his expenses while in Vancouver.
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution towards his meals while he is in Vancouver.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS COLON CANCER PATIENT WITH TRAVEL AND MEDICATION EXPENSES

Cancer Crossing has assisted a gentleman who lives in a Winnipeg bedroom community and who has been diagnosed with colon cancer.  He has had surgery and is about to begin chemotherapy.
He was living alone (having lost his wife to cancer) but has moved in with his daughter for additional support and care during his treatment.
He is retired, collecting CPP and OAS, so his income is fixed and limited.  He is concerned about his ability to cover the cost of travel to his medical appointments and to access his medications.  His daughter has been taking time off work to drive him to his appointments.  He is in the process of exploring other means of financial support but his need is now. 
Cancer Crossing has made a contribution to this patients travel and medication expenses and we hope that soon he will find further financial resources to help get him by.

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.
