Your Generous Gift Supports Local Cancer Patients Facing Financial Hardship

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it affects many aspects of their life, and may impact their ability to earn a living. There are cancer patients right here in our community who have had to leave their jobs behind to focus on treatment. This circumstance often brings with it a great deal of financial distress. In an attempt to alleviate some of the financial burden, the Patient Assistance Fund was created. The Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation’s Patient Assistance Fund is available for emergency use when all other forms of financial assistance are not available.

It is very challenging for most to even come forward and ask for assistance. When a local cancer patient does, they need things like fresh food, transportation to treatment, and support to cover medical and dental expenses. Requests for support from the Patient Assistance Fund are assessed by Social Workers within the Windsor Regional Cancer Program.


Items Appearing In Requests For Patient Assistance

By supporting the Patient Assistance Fund, your generous tax-deductible gift will provide necessities like the items listed below. Please consider gifting one of these necessities to our local cancer patients in financial hardship. When you make your donation, you have the option to choose one of these pre-set amounts, or donate the gift amount of your choosing.

Help patients like Kim, who lost her coverage when she had to leave her job behind, yet still needs to maintain her oral health. Or consider patients like Marianne, who needs to travel from Tilbury three times a week to receive vital treatment. Or perhaps a patient just like Dennis, who is in treatment, is unable to work, and struggles to provide fresh food for himself and two growing children.
