Freebies for Fighters
Our family has had it’s share of cancer patients as well as losses due to cancer. I could go on and on and list them all but it doesn’t really matter at this point because cancer sucks no matter whose family it affects. Back in 2012 my sister-in-law Amanda S.’ mom Carmel was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer and we are trying to brighten her day by getting her a few things. She is currently under going chemotherapy which has caused her to loose her hair so we are looking for caps, scarves, things that are cute to cover her head. Along the way we found some freebies that we could request for her, but decided that this page needed to be a resource for other cancer patients as well.
I know that there are millions of Americans suffering from this disease and every little bit helps them in their time of need. If you can help, have a contact I don’t have listed or please send me an email at [email protected].
