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'.
