Letter # 1025 Cancer patient in need Letter #1025

Dear Santa,

I work for St. Joseph Health Regional Cancer Care. I work with some amazing cancer patients each and every day; as do my colleagues. We have several patients that have some real needs. I know that Christmas is over a month away, but some of these needs are more urgent, so I thought I would tell you ahead of time.

I would say the most fitting gifts would be Visa gift cards for about $250--$500 or so each. Sometimes is it is hard to meet the variety of needs a patient has. Often, the most important really are the basic need of money for gas for their car, the bus, for prescriptions, food, clothing and funds for PG&E.

I will introduce you to some specific patients that I know have specific needs that the gift cards could help with.

Mavis is a 39 year old lady who has metastatic neuroendocine cancer that has metastasized to her liver and bones. She has 3 children 19, 17 and 16 yrs. and is not able to work. She needs financial help to take care of many things. It would be great if we could give her 3 $100 Target gift cards for the kids and $250 + in the form of Visa cards for Mavis for food, gas and utilities. She would be so grateful to receive help.

Thank you Santa for helping me with Mavis.
Sincerely,
Sharon
