Letter # 930 Cancer patient in need Letter #930

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.

Lesa is a 51 year old lady with cervical adenocarcinoma. She is a sweet lady and single mom of 2. She needs financial help in the form of Visa gift cards so that she can pay for food, gas and pg&e . If we could give her $250 in the form of Visa cards, that would be so very helpful. She doesn't have any extra money for herself, she would love to be able to get a massage at the Sonoma Mission Inn in Sonoma where she lives. If we gave her a gift certificate for $200., she could get this 60 minute massage:

Pure Relaxation Massage—60/90 minutes $179/$259
This light to medium pressure, full body, Swedish style massage is tailored to suit your specific needs. It offers a gentle intensity and is designed to increase circulation, enhance lymphatic drainage and promote relaxation. Your provider will assist you in selecting the perfect therapeutic aromatherapy blend for your needs.

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