Letter # 911 Cancer Patient in need Letter #911

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 some say of our 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 needs of gas for their car, transportation funds, food, clothing and money for rent.

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

My first patient is Faisal. He is a 56 year old man who has metastatic pancreatic cancer. He is worried about his wife and two children. He has one daughter in medical school. She has chosen this field because of her dad's illness. She wants to be able to find cures and help others so that they do not have to go through what her family has. He also has a son who is 17 and in high school. He is not able to work and needs financial help to take care of many things.

Is we could get him and his family $500 + in the form of Visa cards, that would be so very helpful. They would be so grateful.

Thank you Santa for helping me with cancer patients
