We were approached about a lady who was street homeless, with breast cancer, which had unfortunately spread to her lymphnodes. The hospital were unable to treat her while she was homeless, so her local council have been pressured into providing her with adequate housing. It is only a small place, which has to be self contained and kept spotlessly clean as once she begins treatment her immune system will be obliterated and she'll be at risk to catching infections.
All she had with her was a supermarket bag for life, containing her few belongings. Her travel costs had already been covered by a sponsor, but we sent across £150, so that she could buy a bed and mattress, a small chest of drawers and some cooking pots.
