Young single mum diagnosed with cancer

A young mum, 25 years old has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing extensive treatment.  She was working full-time, but is off work at the moment on half-pay and will soon move over to Statutory Sick Pay only.  This is causing her distress as she has a mortgage, her bills and her 4 year old to think of, as well as trying to recover.  Grants from elsewhere have been applied for on her behalf, but in the meantime she is unable to cover her energy costs and some other bills, so we agreed to send her £100 to tide her over until her other payments kick in.
