Former nurse affected by cancer

A former nurse now impacted by cancer is struggling to manage financially.  She is in receipt of Employment Support Allowance and also Personal Independence Payments (PIP) however the PIP payments have now stopped being paid and she is currently in the process of appealing that decision.  The stopping of her payments has made life extremely difficult financially.  Her condition will only get worse than it is already, and the stress of her change of income has made matters worse.  She needs to be scrupulous about hygiene, but is worried about having enough money to put the heating on so she can have hot water.  We agreed to send her £100 to help her out.
