Letter # 961 Cancer patient in need Letter #961

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.

Geoffrey is a 70 year old man with pancreatic cancer. He and his wife live in Rohnert Park. They are fearful of being deported and therefore do not ask for any help, so as not to draw attention to them; they are such a sweet couple from Malasia. They need financial help in the form of a Visa gift card so that they can buy food, pay for gas, utilities etc.

If we could give him $500 in the form of Visa cards, that would be very helpful.
Thank you Santa for helping me with Geoffrey and his wife.
Sincerely,
Sharon
