Cura Stories

Mrs J, Middlesex

Mrs J was struggling with food bills as she was unable to work during her treatment and her husband was also taking time off work to accompany her. Cura arranged for some supermarket vouchers to be sent to help with the cost.

Miss W, Hertfordshire

Miss W was struggling through her treatment, using a local laundrette as her washing machine was broken. After speaking with the patient, Cura ordered a new washing machine to be plumbed in for her and the old one taken away. Miss W emailed Cura: ‘I really felt like someone was trying to help when I felt so lonely’.

Mr D, Middlesex

Mr D was unable to have family to stay and help him during breast cancer treatment as he only had one bedroom. Cura paid for a sofa bed to enable him to have family and friends to stay overnight and support him during treatment.

Mrs V, Middlesex

During a very difficult year when this patient’s family were dealing with her diagnosis, prognosis and treatment schedule, Cura paid for a Merlin family pass allowing days out at Legoland, Madame Tussauds and Alton Towers for one year.

Mrs S, Buckinghamshire

Mrs S had put on weight during her chemotherapy which is a known side-effect of some breast cancer treatment. She needed to buy new clothes during the winter months but especially new bras following mastectomy surgery. Cura was able to help in providing clothing vouchers for high street stores.

Ms J, Bedfordshire

During the winter and spring months Ms J had struggled to pay her fuel bills as she had to reduce her working hours as a result of appointments and treatments for her breast cancer. Cura sent direct payment to one of her utility providers to help ease this cost for her. Ms J sent a grateful email to Cura saying that she had been dreading the winter months and how she was going to manage the increased bills.
