“Thanks so much for your financial assistance. Every dollar certainly lessened the burden of being diagnosed with cancer. The money has helped with fuel & auto maintenance, meals away from home, medications & other necessary things. We are certainly sure it helped us mentally. Once again, this support has been tremendous to us as a couple of retired seniors who have no company pension, etc. Thanks to all.”- Cancer Patient from Glovertown, Newfoundland and Labrador

 

The Patient and Family Support Fund continues to be our area of greatest need. It is a fund of last resort for many patients, after all other possible sources of support have been exhausted. The generosity of our donors makes it possible for patients to receive financial assistance with unexpected costs that arise during their treatment such as: costs associated with travelling to receive their treatment; and medical supplies (such as prostheses, lymphedema sleeves, wigs and mastectomy supplies). There are situations where the patient cannot afford basic needs such as groceries to feed their families. Through your donations to the Patient and Family Support Fund, you are there to help them when they need it most.

“Thank you so much to the Patient and Family Support Fund for helping me pay the cost of my travel fare back and forth to St. John’s from Bay-de-Verde. It’s a tremendous cost to have a car to get back and forth and I am grateful for you help.”- Cancer Patient from Bay-de-Verde
