Cancer Crossing has assisted a Winnipeg man with rectal cancer.  This is a second cancer for this gentleman as he has dealt with leukemia in the past.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS TEENAGER WITH EWING SARCOMA WITH PURCHASE OF A WIG

Cancer Crossing has assisted a Manitoba family with the purchase of a wig for their teenage daughter.

She has Ewing Sarcoma and is undergoing chemo and radiation.  Her mother was wanting to get her a wig to help her feel more comfortable at school and in public settings.  This girl has a sparkling personality and is amazing and is looking forward to getting a wig so that she can 'feel like herself'.  Cancer Crossing recognizes how the loss of hair is unsettling and overall traumatic especially for a young girl whose sense of self, and self-confidence, are still developing and we are so happy that we can help this family.

CANCER CROSSING HELPS TORONTO CANCER PATIENT WITH PUBLIC TRANSIT TO EXERCISE PROGRAM

Cancer Crossing has assisted a 36 year old woman in Toronto with Stage IV colon cancer.  

She is unemployed having left a full time job to retrain in a different sector.  As she was looking for a new job and looking forward to new beginnings, she received her diagnosis.  She was unable to continue her job search as treatment has taken a physical toll on her body.

She is living with her parents who are retired but has additional expenses as a result of the cancer diagnosis she does not want to burden her parents with.  Specifically, there is a cancer exercise program she wants to join to help maintain some normalcy in her life.  

Cancer Crossing has provided this patient with funds to cover her travel to and from the exercise program as the program is quite a distance from her home and public transportation in Toronto is expensive.

CANCER CROSSING ASSISTS WITH FUEL COSTS FOR RURAL CANCER PATIENT TO DRIVE TO WINNIPEG AS THE VOLUNTEER DRIVING PROGRAM HAS NO VOLUNTEER

 Cancer Crossing has assisted a 75 year old gentleman from Manitoba's Interlake Region.

He was diagnosed with prostate cancer and will require 30 radiation treatments in Winnipeg.  The volunteer driving program is unavailable as the program is without a volunteer in his area.

He has opted to travel to Winnipeg and back for each treatment which will involve considerable fuel expense - yet this option is much cheaper than staying in Winnipeg for the period.  In addition, he takes comfort in his home and would prefer to return home after each treatment.

He and his wife are both on pension and therefore have a limited fixed income.  

Cancer Crossing has assisted this gentleman with fuel for his many trips to Winnipeg for care.
