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 helps those who 'fall between the cracks'.
