Lex-Care: Cancer patient needs money for car repairs

Shannon Gordon, social worker at the Senior Citizens Center, submitted this case to Lex-Care:

Her client is a widow who needs $750 to replace the transmission in her car.

The woman is undergoing cancer treatment and her vehicle is necessary to get her to appointments and to run errands.

The cost of the repair is not an ongoing expense and once the bill is paid she will be able to maintain her household on the income she receives from Social Security.
