Letter # 928 Cancer patient in need Letter#928

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.

Colette is a 41 year old lady with metastatic breast cancer. She is a sweet lady and single mom. She has two daughters and a son. She worries a lot about her future and the children if she should pass away soon. She needs financial help in the form of Visa gift cards so that she can pay for food, gas pg&e and all that it takes to raise 3 children. If we could give her $500 + in the form of Visa cards, that would be so very helpful. She would be so grateful.

Her children would also appreciate gift cards from Kohls and Forever 21.

Thank you Santa for helping me each year with cancer patients.
Sincerely,
Sharon
