Letter # 934 Cancer patient in need Letter #934

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.

Don is a 87 year old man with with prostate cancer. He and his 88 year old partner, Connie, have been together for over 40 yrs. They saw her through her breast cancer and are now rallying around him as he works through treatments. their funds are tight with not much room for anything special or self-care. They could use financial help in the form of Visa gift cards so that she can pay for food, gas and pg&e . If we could give Don and Connie each $250 in the form of Visa cards, that would be so very helpful and sweet. I know that Connie might use some of hers for a manicure or pedicure.

Thank you Santa for helping me with Don and Connie.

By checking this box you agree to fulfill this wish.
