Single lady diagnosed with cancer

A lady who lives alone has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment.  She is finding it difficult to continue with her job so is going to have to give up work and put in a claim for Employment Support Allowance instead.  It is going to take some time for her claim to be processed, and in the meantime her washing machine has broken, so our agents are helping her to apply for a grant to have that replaced.  She is really struggling with her bills so we sent her £100 to help.

A former teacher diagnosed with cancer is currently undergoing high dose chemotherapy and awaiting a stem cell transplant.  She is a single parent and former teacher, now unable to work due to her diagnosis.  She has no family and is no longer able to drive.  She is struggling financially and was recently forced to move home through no fault of her own.  We agreed to send her £150 to use towards food and energy costs.
