-Travel: Lynn and Terry are sharing this job and will travel back and forth from Edmonton to Calgary numerous times during the 3 months. Terry will need to continue his full time job near Edmonton during the week.
-Accomodations in Calgary (apartments near the hospital)
-Meals for Betty and her caregiver
-Medical expenses not covered by Alberta Health (there are many drugs associated with the transplant)
-Fuel costs and parking at the hospital for Betty's appointments
-Loss of income, Betty is currently receiving EI Benefits but this only covers part of her income.
For those of you who are wondering, I am Betty's niece (the one who used to hide her bread crusts under Aunt Betty's kitchen table at lunch time). I live in Edmonton, Alberta and I have set up a bank account for this gofundme page. We intend to pay for the rent of the apartment that Betty will be staying in, bus fare for Lynn and reimbursing Terry for his gas mileage straight from the account. Any extra funds that are not needed after the bone marrow transplant will be donated back to the cancer foundation.
