A wheelchair please

Hello, my name is Therese. In 1999 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I started at the Relapsing/Remitting stage. I have now progressed to Secondary Progressive. My husband moved out of the home 4 months later. I met an amazing man in 2000 and we have been together ever since. On top of everything I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago. The breast cancer has metastasized to Bone Cancer. The cancer is in my skull, rib cage, spine and hip. It's also in my liver. My cancerous hip and the MS are causing a great deal of pain when I try to walk. I feel that in order for me to have any quality of life I should be able to get out of the house and perhaps explore some places that I've never been to before I pass. The only way I will be able to get around is to use a wheelchair. I am a recipient of CPP Disability which doesn't pay enough to be able to pay for large expenditures. My husband is retired and receives CPP. We manage to make ends, but now most of our income goes to my cancer care, rent, food, gas for the car. We must traveI to a city that is approx. 1 hour away for all of my cancer care. When the time comes I would like to leave the wheelchair with the MS Society or the Cancer Society. Thank you for reading my story.
