Letter # 924 Cancer patient in need Letter #924

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.

Albert is a 75 year old man with prostate cancer. He is a sweet man; always a social activist, helping others. He was living in his van until he was forced to move by the SRPD and his van and all his belongings were taken away. Albert has no family support and now has had to live at the Sam Jones shelter. He needs financial help in the form of a Visa gift card so that he can get transportation to his treatments, buy clothes and food.

If we could give him $250 + in the form of Visa cards, that would be so very helpful. He would be so grateful.
Thank you Santa for helping me each year with cancer patients.
Sincerely,
Sharon
