I need the bus to get to my doctor so I can get healthy and be there for my mom. I just wish it could be easier.

Christine is currently battling breast cancer.  She is unemployed and is the primary caretaker for her mother. Once Christine has paid for rent, utilities and food, she has $60 left for the month.  Because there is not enough left for a bus pass, she has to calculate each trip she might take.  These transportation issues have prevented her from accessing choice in health care providers and make travel to and from appointments a struggle.
