Cancer Crossing has assisted a Winnipeg woman with a recurrence of breast cancer. This is not just a recurrence, it's her third breast cancer. To deal with this latest recurrence, she has had a mastectomy, chemo and radiation. Her prognosis going forward is a good one.
However, due to a comorbidity, she is on permanent disability which yields a very modest income and her only family is her mother who is in a care home.
She lives alone and does not have family or friends who can consistently come and help her with meal prep - which is required due to limited use of her left arm. She has found a meal delivery service that will provide healthy meals at a very reasonable price.
In addition, she is experiencing some radiation burn. She is very sensitive to chemicals in personal care products and has found a natural cream specially formulated for radiation burn, but it is a bit pricey.
Cancer Crossing has provided financial assistance to this patient for specialty cream for radiation burn and a few healthy, low fat meals from the meal prep service at a very reasonable price.
Cancer Crossing helps those who 'fall between the cracks'.
