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 helps those who 'fall between the cracks'.
